Signature Technique

Unique methods of twiddling and fiddling, manipulating fabric to create tantalising textures – engineering in material!

Jennie’s Top Tips

  • Use of a firmly woven crisp fabric will create the best textural effects, stiffer materials maintain the folds.
  • Pressing seams open and flat reduces bulk and makes the finished piece have a more even appearance.
  • When free motion quilting, use a plastic horseshoe shaped hoop or embroidery hoop as a ‘steering wheel’ to give you something to grasp
