After earning her degree in Design and Environmental Analysis from Cornell University in 1977, Allie Aller has been quilting non-stop. She made bed quilts, Broderie Perse, stained glass quilts, and landscape quilts for two and an half decades and these approaches still inform her creativity...for the past twelve years, the sumptuous and liberating genre of crazy quilting has been her focus. She then became fascinated by the confluence of vintage traditional quilting and crazy quilting. Now she has turned her attention to stained glass quilts, with her new book, Allie Aller's Stained Glass Quilts Reimagined: Fresh Technques and Design, published in February 2017.
Her work has appeared in Quilters Newsletter Magazine, American Quilter, the $100,000 Quilt Challenge, Needlepoint Now, and the Way to Womens Wellness Art Bra Calendars (cover, 2007), as "guest artist" in several books, and in her own Allie Aller's Crazy Quilting, C & T Publishing, 2011. Quilts...A Little Bit Crazy, co-authored with fellow crazy quilter Valerie Bothell, was published in May 2014.
Allison is a nationally-known teacher and an instructor for www.Craftsy.com where she teaches "Crazy Quilting" online.
