Irene Blanck. Quiltshow Pour L'Amour Du Fil #2
Irene Blanck is Australian and teached us needleturn appliqué. her method is mainly focused on speeding up the preparation time. She uses the pattern and a light box to trace the pieces and place them onto the background. Then she glues all the pieces in place before starting sewing teh traditional way.
I was very happy to be in a class with Irene because I love her quilts and irene herself is as beautiful person, very nice and friendly. She loves games and she organized a mini lottery among the participants and I was the lucky winner :-)
We worked on one block of this quilt.
And here are photos of her quilts in her house :
Her smile sums it up. Thank you Irene. It was great to meet you.
All the quilts are in her book Focus on Appliqué.
Until next post,
