TAKING LIBERTIES WITH CUT-WORK  48" x 65" 1993

 

 

Cut-work embroidery motifs were the inspiration behind this quilt which was sewn using a hand reverse appliqué method. The design was transferred onto the black foreground fabric with carbon paper and the coloured background fabrics were placed behind and exposed using a needle-turn technique. Inspiration for the circular border and the outer border came from traditional quilting designs that were redrawn as stencils.

*The Liberty floral fabrics in the feather and rope border were sorted into light, medium and dark values to emphasise the over and under movement of the feathers in relation to the rope.
