How to Make a Confetti Quilt with Andrea Brokenshire | How to Do Straight Line Quilting with Melody Crust
(Show 1706) Art Quilter Andrea Brokenshire’s style changed radically after a debilitating illness when she moved away from hand appliqué and quilting onto other pathways. She now works with more contemporary looks and favors a confetti technique she developed, along with the use of silks for appliqué pieces. Her inspiration comes from Monet’s garden paintings. Her confetti backgrounds are created with batik snippets that are haphazardly sprinkled on a matching background, which are then stitched down randomly, creating a dimensional texture. She also demonstrates tricks for mastering appliqué with slippery silk charmeuse. Artist Melody Crust then offers tips for perfect straight-line quilting, which can be used to enhance both contemporary and traditional quilts.
