Greetje Hein – Series #1 – Pansy
In the last few years I have taken part in several workshops from foreign quilters, i.e. Katie Pasquini, Susan Brubacker and Elsbeth Nusser. So far I did not use the techniques I learned from them.
My goal for the series challenge is to use these techniques and maybe make a combination of them. My backgrounds will be more or less the same for all five. I will use green and purple/blue in all of my quilts. In all five quilts there will be one or more pansies. These pansies will be made with different techniques.
For my first quilt I made a composition of different fabrics as a background. I also used ribbons and machine-embroidered motives. The leaves are made with green organza. This pansy is a hand painted one from the workshop with Susan Brubacker.
The whole piece is machine quilted, mostly free motion.
