It was exciting to see my wall quilt ‘ Florabunda’ displayed on the cover of Quilters Companion GREAT AUSTRALIAN QUILTS magazine. #13
This version is a raw edge machine appliqué project using batik fabrics. The background is quilted in patterns that extend the floral design and the gum blossoms are embellished with colonial knots. The full pattern and instructions are listed as a project in the magazine.
FUN WITH INKTENSE PENCILS.
I had an enjoyable day with some lovely ladies in Batemans Bay. We experimented and played with our Inktense Pencils on fabric to create a placemat or small sample.
In this workshop I demonstrated how to outline the selected design on the fabric, various techniques used to apply the colours and how to quilt the finished piece with free motion machine quilting.
Below are some images of their work, well done to everyone who attended.
I also have been experimenting at home with my Inktense Pencils and wanted to see how they worked on linen. The Waratah was inspired by a photo my husband took on one of his photographic group outings.
Here is my finished version on cream linen, coloured with the pencils then free motion quilted.
