Texture with Textiles – Black background quilt

Black-background quilt

This is another of the examples shown in the Texture with Textiles session I attended on October 19 at the Creative Stitches show. The session was led by Carola from Carola’s Quilt Shop.

This is another wall-hanging/art quilt that the instructor showed us. The only real technique that she talked about with this was placing the top fabrics on the background to “audition” them by ironing them (no adhesives needed) because often the static or whatever will very temporarily ‘bond’ the fabrics together.

She also mentioned that she rarely hand-stitches, and all of the applique on the quilt is done by machine as is the quilting in the borders, and only the long basting stitches were done by hand.
