Show 606 - Showstopping Trapunto

Featuring: Philippa Naylor

Posts On: March 15, 2010


Award-winning quiltmaker Philippa Naylor brings it "all to the table" in this inspiring show. Philippa, who has returned to her native Yorkshire, England, after living for fifteen years in Saudi Arabia, describes how she became interested in quilting and how living in the Middle East influenced her life and her work. She also shares a show and tell of her heart-stopping quilts and demonstrates the techniques she has developed for creating the amazing trapunto that is a hallmark of her style. For the piecers among us, Alex demonstrates a simple method that yields a perfect set-in seam for a Split LeMoyne Star or other similar blocks.
