Join Alex and Ricky on the set with Priscilla Knoble for Episode 1505 - East Meets West: Season Your Quilts with a Japanese Flavor. Meet Priscilla, a "lover of all things fiber-related" who grew up with missionary parents 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 demonstrates some of Yoko's favorite tools and techniques, including how to create and hand appliqué teeny tiny bias stems, design an original House block, and stitch a fully-lined inside pocket.
