Today's show features some simplified versions for common quilt techniques. First, Vivika DeNegre demonstrates a nine patch rearranged quilt for a modern spin on this common block.

Modern Quilting Meets Folk Art (Episode #1307)

KQED Life: Mon, Sep 12, 2016 -- 2:30 PM

Two very distinct quilt approaches, modern quilting and folk art, have one very important element in common-they both thrive on a simple clean aesthetic. Today's three designers take a simple approach with very different techniques. First, Catherine Redford makes a modern place mat using hexagons. Then, Ebony love demonstrates die-cut trapunto. Finally, Michelle May shows how to create a felted flower brooch in the folk art style.

Then, Catherine Redford demonstrates an embroidered chameleon using African folklore embroidery techniques. Last is Michelle May and more folk art-this time its postcards made from wool.
