Controversial Quilters 

Stitched throws more elbows than a hockey game!

Quilting legend Caryl Bryer Fallert was the first quilter to win a major prize for a quilt made with a sewing machine, a technique that quilt purists say is blasphemous. She mentored Hollis Chatelain, who caused a stir in the quilt world when she won an award for a painted quilt. Chatelain then mentored Randall Cook, who sparked controversy with his quilt of a nude male. The story unfolds in the bobbin-popping documentary Stitched, which follows the three notorious patchwork enthusiasts in their trip to the 2010 International Quilt Festival in Houston.

Learn more about quilting and the people who love it (a-hem, Sisters) at a Q&A with director Jenalia Moreno, former reporter for the Houston Chronicle, in a benefit for the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.
