“CLEMENTINE was designed to showcase my love of flowers, vases and birds. I mainly use the needle-turn method for all my applique, but I sometimes now use prepared edge because my eyesight is not always good (at night), and I have arthritis in some of my fingers. I have come to enjoy both methods of preparing my applique shapes. A short video will be included in Part 3 demonstrating my method of prepared edge using Polyfuse applique paper. I chose Art Gallery fabrics for my quilt and have been delighted at the rich colour and design in so many of their fabrics which helped to make my quilt so colourful. There were a lot of opportunities for fussy cutting using their beautiful fabrics. I grew up in Africa and also lived for a short time in India. I was influenced by the riot of colour that women used in everyday clothing, and I am now inspired to make my quilts as colourful as the clothing that I remember seeing.”
