Oooo! I just had to post this *AMAZING* Show & Tell that our talented quilter friend, Patty, brought into the office the other day. This stunning flower is all applique using American Made Brand solids by Clothworks! Patty had just returned from the ‘Quilting in the Desert’ retreat in Arizona, and came back with this dazzling beginning of a beautiful applique quilt! Lucky Patty scored a spot in the 5 day retreat/workshop taught by the brilliant quilt & fabric artist, Jane Sassaman.
In her workshop, Jane Sassaman instructed the students on how to create an ‘abstract floral’ applique design using inspiration from nature. See the resemblance to the chrysanthemum pictured above?
I’d say Patty is off to a fab start with this project! She really enjoyed working with AMB solids in this applique project and commented on how the fabric had a wonderful hand. I couldn’t agree more with her, but as I admire this gorgeous design, I’m amazed by how vibrant the colors of American Made Brand solids are, too! With clear, bright colors like these found in the AMB assortment, they really serve this graphic floral motif very well and make it pop! Don’t you just love the fiery oranges, yellows, and reds in this?
