THIS IS VERY INTERESTING TO WATCH THIS WOMAN QUILTING FROM HER HOME IN WALTON, OR. SHE MAKES QUILT TOPS OR COMPLETE COMMISSIONED QUILTS. SHE USES CARDBOARD TEMPLATES AND SCISSORS!
Okay so I watched this video this afternoon, and was kinda FLOORED and how this woman quilted. Mind you this film was done back in 1979.
But it was interesting watching her cut out her fabric with SCISSORS with a homeade template, and then sew it with her Coats & Clark thread, and then quilt it by hand on her homemade frame.
To me it was really nice to see what someone could do without all of the gadgets and gizmos, and she turned out BEAUTIFUL quilts!
Give it a watch if you think it will interest you.
