Also learn how clear aloe gel plays a role in coloring on lace. To watch more episodes of Quilters Newsletter Workshop visit QNNtv.com!
Allie Aller has been quilting non-stop since earning a degree in design and environmental analysis from Cornell University in 1977. Her quiltmaking style varied widely for 25 years, then the “sumptuous and liberating genre of crazy quilting” became her focus. She is the author of Allie Aller’s Crazy Quilting (C&T Publishing) and co-author with Valerie Bothell of Quilting… Just a Little Bit Crazy (C&T Publishing).
