TOPIC: Organza in quilts

Re: Organza in quilts 01 Nov 2012 04:45 #91250

I use a soldering iron to cut...BUT. The smell is terrible, do this outside and cut on glass or something that won't melt. Really you should use a mask that is filtered. I used organza on a ministers cope.. Looked great but I had a terrible headache. Next time I will get the right mask before I do it again. Giselle, Canberra Australia

I went to Esterita Austin's site and found that she had a print on canvas of one of my favorite quilts for sale. I got it today and am thrilled to have found it. Couldn't find any books by her listed or online classes but thank you so much for steering me to her site.

Esterita Austin uses organza on some of her quilts to show glass. She has a very interesting technique. You would have to take one of her classes to learn ii. You might also want to contact her go to her website.

Now that's what I needed to see. Thanks so much for posting it, Lorchen. I'm more excited about using organza than ever.

Anything made from sheers is very difficult to photo graph. But here is a small (6x10 inches) piece I made. It's displayed in an acrylic frame.

She is one of the quilt artists I was so fascinated by. Saw her work in an art quilt book and went to her site. She actually sales a kit for an organza quilt. I'm hoping to order one. Would love to see her on the show. I've never seen a photo of her sheer quilts and can't "picture" it.

Ineke Berlyn works a lot with sheers and her quilts are spectacular (a lot of them double-sided). Have a look at her website. She has also written books and gives classes - a very nice and very talented lade. Ricky and Alex should invite her. :)

Judyc, I wish I had won the blocks that month (it was my guild's BOM); but I didn't. So I don't have a photo of the end result. :(
