Kaylene Maalste – Series #2 – Techniques – Applique
The second quilt in the series is “Applique” I had to choose an uncomplicated technique due to having carpal tunnel surgery on my hand last month. The circles were hand sewn and outlined with embroidery thread, the “blank” circles were outlined with a freezer paper and then hand embroidered. The echo quilting was done with the walking foot. To maintain the continuity with from the first quilt the right hand side of the quilt has two vertical strips of fabric to act as a border. The circles were placed so that the pattern line in the lower three pointed to the top circle inviting the viewer’eye to travel up through the quilt.
Materials: 100% plain broadcloth and shibori dyed cotton.
