How to Make a Whole Cloth Quilt that Looks Like Applique | Curved Log Cabin Quilt Blocks
(Show 1904) Sherry Rogers-Harrison doesn’t make appliqué quilts; she creates whole cloth quilts that look like appliqué using fabric paints and stitching. She loves seeing the reactions of people when they realize how her work is done. Starting with a design transferred to white fabric and stitched to create a complex design, she uses paint to create the look of different pieces of fabric. She discusses the tools she uses and shares a clever trick for using an extra-fine paint pen to create the look of stitching. The Quilt Show also visits the studio of Jean Ann Wright, who makes log cabin blocks look curvy. She shows you how to use various sizes of fabric strips and finished blocks to create the illusion of curved designs.
