Bernadette Houghton has always been fascinated by Jacobean design and wanted to create something that reflected those motifs. She found the perfect fabric and then reached out to Barbara Persing to create a quilting design that accentuated the beauty of her appliqué. Highclere Castle for example, AKA Downton Abbey, was created in the Jacobean style.

Jacobean Flora and Fauna by Bernadette Houghton of Columbia, South Carolina, with Barbara Persing, was featured in the Appliqué, Large category, sponsored by EZ Quilting, at Houston 2019.

There is such a feeling of dimension and it has both a tapestry sense about it and a very three dimensional feeling the colors are breath takeing
