How to do Layered and Textured Applique with Sue Spargo | Quilt Studio Visit Barb Normoyle
(Show 810) Sue Spargo, contemporary folk artist, designer and teacher, was born and raised in Southern Africa. Here she demonstrates her technique for adding dimension to a wool "base" leaf with layers of velvet, silk, and cotton and then then offers seven creative ways to introduce even more texture with embossing, embroidery, beads, and other embellishments. Sue attributes the evolution of her signature, layered and embellished, "primitive"-style work to her childhood and the energy and color of traditional African designs. Then, we visit the home of Barbara and Bob Normoyle. Barbara, a prolific quilter, has a fantastic eye for decorating, and uses quilts throughout her home to enhance the decor.
