Quilt exhibition from Nordic Crafter
”The works presented here (2017–2022) reflect a journey of a self taught quilter. I explored various machine or hand piecing techniques (traditional piecing, foundation paper piecing, applique, English Paper Piecing) and color gradulation through different fabrics (Marimekko, Liberty Tana Lawn, upcycled denim etc).
My quilts always have a lot of negative space and I conquer it on a domestic sewing machine. I find free motion quilting (fmq) to be the most fascinating stage of quilt making as it completely transforms flat surfaces and allows you create secondary designs with just a needle and thread.”
