How to Make a Grandmother's Flower Garden Block and How to Make a Pineapple Block with Gyleen Fitzgerald
(Show 909) The work of quilt artist and author Gyleen Fitzgerald may be rooted in tradition, but she never fails to add her own contemporary spin. Gyleen shares her method for stitching the "Grandmother's Flower Garden" block by machine using the "butterfly seam," and how the same technique can be used for sewing a typical Y-seam. She also demonstrates how to make a colorful "trash to treasure" Pineapple block using her pineapple ruler and lots of fabric scraps. Then, Brett Maddox (Executive Director of Red Crags Estate) introduces the "permanent residents" (aka ghosts) of our location: the picturesque, circa-1912 Onaledge B&B, in Manitou Springs, CO.
