Quilting experts Laurie Baker and Georgia Gingrich invite quilters to think beyond the pattern in this special from WTVP-Public Media. More than just a quilting how-to, Outside the Block offers both beginning and experienced quilters the reative tools they need to build a truly personalized masterpiece.
From fabric basics to cutting to the actual sewing, Georgia and Laurie share their wealth of experience with practical advice and engaging humor.
“Other quilting programs deal more with how to make a specific project exactly as the designer made it,” says Laurie. “We’re concentrating on a basic quilt block, offering insights on how to change the pieces that make up the block and really make it your own.”
“We were taught in kindergarten to ‘color inside the lines,’” added Georgia. “We’re encouraging quilters to explore beyond the lines and think outside the block.”
