How to Use Unusual Materials in Quilts with Judith Baker Montano | How to Make a Pineapple Quilt Block
(Show 1212) Alex and Ricky welcome back fiber artist, author, and teacher Judith Baker Montano on location at The Old Exchange and Provost in beautiful downtown Charleston, SC. Judith discusses her Canadian upbringing, and the influences of both the Hutterites and Canada's native peoples on her early work. She then shares her techniques for distorting traditional stitches to create organic shapes and interesting layers. Judith also uses cheesecloth, scrim, and other unique materials in her pieces, incorporating painterly techniques along the way. Finally, in a segment taped in Sisters, OR, we meet UK quilter, Karin Hellaby, who offers a brief history of Pineapple quilts and shows her "Sew Simple" technique for creating a Pineapple block.
