I’m very pleased to announce Pathways has been published in the 11th issue of Curated Quilts Journal, and is showcased in The Appliqué Gallery! Zoom Workshops are available!
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!
I’m so very pleased my Hover-quilting Kits have been made with Colorworks Premium Solids from Northcott Fabric and include beautiful prints from Northcott’s Artisan Spirit Collection called “Shimmer” and have been paired with Cherrywood Hand Dyed Fabrics.
Kits are available with your choice of a black background or a white background. View pictures under “Workshops”.
Kits include a spool of 60wt Perfect Cotton-Plus thread, no-slip ruler, soft-blend batting and a Foundational Products Card all from Quilters Select, along with The ABC Pocket Guild from SCHMETZ needles!
