Pattern Details

Inspired by the tulip gardens of Keukenhof in the Netherlands, several of my Sewfasst(c) techniques are put to good use. These techniques mean cutting and sewing strips without cutting individual triangles, you sew, slice, dice and sew, slice, dice again. The bright colors of tulips will brighten a room during any season. Batiks were used for the whole piece since these fabrics are so intense in color. The background could be dark, but then the flower, stem, and leaf fabrics would need to be more pastel. Copyright bdieges designs©2012. All rights reserved.

In the picture, I am wearing one of my "qweaters," that is a quilt-sweater combination, with knitted back, sleeves, and quilted front. In the background is the Quilter's Newsletter January 1999 cover quilt, my Snow Crystals quilt. Although I have been playing with fabrics and threads since childhood, I did not make my first quilt until 1969. By 1982 quilting became my passion. I have had several years of in-depth study of quilt history, design and techniques with some very traditional and non-traditional quilt teachers. One of my quilts won an Honorable Mention at the American Quilt Society in Paducah, KY and have had eight quilts juried into that same show. Four of my quilts have also been in the International Quilt Association in Houston, TX. I also have had numerous patterns and books published. My book "A Thread Runs Through It," is based on my one-woman play, which has been an honor to present to guilds. Some quilt classes I teach are on the web at http://academyofquilting.com/. My website also keeps me busy. For almost 15 years I have been presenting an Applique Block of the Month at http://bdieges.com.
