Greetje Hein – Series #2 – Techniques – Pansy #2

This second piece of my Pansy’s has a background made in a similar way as my first piece.

For my pansies I used a technique I learned from Elsbeth Nusser Lampe. The pansies are made with the top sheer of paper napkins. It is fused to the background and quilted with rayon yarn.

The Tyvek piece in the left bottom part I made during a workshop with Jacky Howard. I did this workshop together with Els and Kaylene.

The two lace pieces I used as a template first and after that I stitched the original pieces on my quilt.

I also used variegated yarn for my quilting and embellished my quilt with beads.

    What attention to detail! I like the way the colours have followed through from the first piece. Lovely work!

  2. Chantal Guillermet

    It is a very nice piece and as for the first one I like your choice oF colours. The use of several techniques is interesting, especially hoU you used the lace to print with and then as an appliqué piece.

  3. Just love how by taking the pansy you have created a new and interesting quilt to compliment the first. The colours are a delight, the addition of the different panels adds interest and variety. Well done

  4. What a pretty interpretation of your second pansy. With the lace, this one has (to my mind) a rather ‘Victorian’ feel. (see I like it very much!

    I love pansies, and your second piece is another lovely representation, and I like the way that it continues on from your first piece. The details of the fabric and paper you have used are very delicate and beautifully worked. I love the interest that this provides. A lovely piece

  6. Another beautiful pansy. I love the colours and stitching in the pansy flower and also the different ways that you have used lace.

  7. Beautiful Greetje. I love your surface design. Very nice idea to use the lace first as a template and than incorporate it in your quilt. I would like you to show me the Elsbeth Nusser technique one day. Looking forward to the next technique you are going to use in your third quilt.

  8. Your pansies are beautiful, the little pansies look like they are floating. Love all the detail, texture and techniques you used. Well done Greetje
