We return to the Witte Museum in San Antonio, TX, to meet Priscilla Knoble, a "lover of all things fiber-related" who grew up the daughter of missionaries in Japan. As a quilter familiar with the Japanese design aesthetic and fluent in the language, Priscilla emerged as the obvious (authorized) choice to translate, publish, and distribute the books of renowned Japanese quilt artist Yoko Saito.

  • Priscilla discusses the subtle, but surprisingly complex Japanese taupe color palate
  • Demonstrates some of Yoko's favorite tools and techniques
  • How to create and hand appliqué teeny tiny bias stems
  • Design an original House block
  • Stitch a fully-lined inside pocket

Quilt Alliance Announces 2015 Quilt Contest

Posted in Just for Fun  |   Submit a Comment

6822_animals_we_love.jpgThe Quilt Alliance has announced their 9th annual  contest theme, Animals We Love.

From the Quilt Alliance:

A contest for all quilters – we encourage everyone who makes quilts to enter our annual contest regardless of their style (traditional, modern, art) or technique (longarm, hand quilting, applique, pieced...) --all are welcomed and valued! This year’s theme celebrates the animals we love.

As usual, we welcome any technique, any concept that addresses the theme—but each entry must be a quilt (three layers stitched together). Finished quilts must be 16" x 16" in size and must include a label on the back to include at minimum the name of the artist, title, date & location made. In addition each quilt must have a 4” sleeve sewn to the top of the quilt. All entries become a donation to the Quilt Alliance, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and after a national exhibition tour, will be auctioned to benefit the mission of the organization. All entries will be documented and shared in The Quilt Index (www.QuiltIndex.org).

It's official - The 2015 Quilters Hall of Fame inductee is Mimi Dietrich!

Here’s what Mimi has to say about her induction into the Quilters Hall of Fame:

I am thrilled and honored to be the next inductee into the Quilters Hall of Fame next July. The best part is that for almost 40 years I have been doing something that I love…quilting! I am truly proud of the books I have written with Martingale, and I have loved traveling around our wonderful country and meeting quilters in my classes. For most of my students it all starts with one little hand-appliqué stitch and grows into a fabulous quilt! If you’ve enjoyed my books or taken a class with me, come join me at the Quilters Hall of Fame in Marion, Indiana, next summer…it’s going to be the trip of a lifetime!
