This style of quilt is extremely tactile and Gail shows Valerie a variety of styles and patterns that she has designed and which you too can make.
Working in fleece means that the edges don’t fray and Gail loves to use this for the applique motives as well because again it’s simple and easy; but you could just as well make these in more traditional cotton patchwork fabrics.
Gail talks us through the applique methods that can be used and as she works on each little square at a time, it makes it really easy and portable too.
Once you’ve made all the front little pieces, then the backing is a single piece; and you can avoid having wadding in their too if you wish.
Gail also likes to incorporate more 3D items on her applique – such as the flowers and their petals, and also embellishes heavily with buttons .
If you are interested in any of the specific patterns – here are the quick links through:
Lots more of her patterns are available here in the shop – just use the quick link Gail Penberthy to find them.
We are thrilled to tell you that Gail will be joining us at a quilt retreat in March 2018 at the beautiful Cotswold Water Park in Cirencester and if you would like to learn more about this – just click here.
