There are several of Daphne Greig's quilts below. Do you know what she used to enhance them, AFTER the quilting was completed?

Breathtaking Fabric Portraits

Posted by Ruth on 11 September 2017 | 0 Comments

Nine amazing textile portraits have hit social media by storm you could say... and I'm not surprised. These portraits are so real like that you wouldn't imagine they were made of fabrics. Marilyn Belford made her first portrait of her parents (shown top left) back in 1999, she has gone on to make many more wonderful portraits as well as other art quilts. She is one very talented lady!

Yes, we know it is the heat of the summer, but winter will be here before you know it, and we will once again be up to our eyes in snow. This past winter in California was unbelievably snowy, so let’s put on our winter coats and think SNOW!

Piecing or Applique?

Posted by Ruth on 8 August 2017 | 1 Comments

Tags:

When Rose Hughes introduced me to her Fast-Piece Applique™ technique, I first thought it was another way to applique, but I was wrong. This is the easiest way I have ever seen to piece curves and circles, even spirals! If you're like me and not fond of piecing curves then you are definitely missing out if you haven't tried this. I tried Rose's method and couldn't believe how easy it was.

Developing one's own style

Posted by Elizabeth Barton on 7 July 2017 | 0 Comments

Tags:

As a teacher, I am frequently asked about how one can develop one's own style. We can clearly see that the Big Names all have it, but how is it done? Does it just happen over time? Or can you jump start it?

Fast and Easy Piecing

Posted by Barbara Dieges on 3 July 2017 | 0 Comments

Barbara Dieges SewfasstQuilting has come a long way since I became an dedicated quilted back in 1982. I wanted to make the hundreds of quilts that were swimming through my head when I learned how to quilt. I went from hand piecing to machine piecing. Starting with Half Square Triangles, sewing squares instead along that bias cut edge of the triangle, I stepped outside the box and did a lot of "what ifs?"

Is perspective puzzling you?

Is perspective puzzling you? ....you find that sometimes something is just “off” in one of your art quilts and you can’t quite put your finger on the problem. It may be a perspective issue.
