I’m very pleased to announce Pathways will be published in Curated Quilts in The Appliqué Gallery in the spring of 2020.
Pathways is a representational quilt of my home town, Toronto, Canada. The movement of colour represent a landscape of diverse communities living side by side, in harmony throughout this great city.
Pathways measures 90 inches wide and 100 inches long and contains 1,440 half square triangles, each 2 1/2″ square and was constructed using the Hover-quilting technique.
Newcomers from around the world are welcomed into familiar communities that are rich in traditions that celebrates their homeland. The blending of colour and colour movement from one Pathway to the next represents how we are all invited and encouraged to explore cross cultural experiences among our global communities.
Hover-quilting is a new form of raw edge appliqué, absent of fusible-web. This innovative technique produces not only a beautiful controlled frayed edge, but also creates the illusion of the piecing hovering above the quilt top. Zoom in and notice the texture created with this technique!
