Q&A with Rose Allen

KristaS asked:
beautiful fabric.
Rose Allen answered:
This is a great way to use a large scale print. And no piecing!
Surfside6 asked:
You can never go wrong with Kaffee Fassette. These are so beautfiul. I think you should frame them
Rose Allen answered:
This was a great way to showcase his large prints. Just went to a talk he gave this evening here in St. Paul, MN. Fun!
Surfside6 asked:
How exciting. What was the talk about? Art, fabric, history?
Rose Allen answered:
He talked about his journey as an artist, from childhood in California to England. Lots of pictures of his work and what inspired it along with some of the international connections he had made. At the end, he pulled out a huge piece of knitting he takes when he travels - it was the tumbling blocks pattern interpreted in knit! Very cool.
