Quilt shows now abound at any time of the year and all across the country, small towns and cities. Before leaving our winter home I attended one last show in south Texas. I always hope to see something unusual and/or creative that I haven’t seen already published in some manner. For me, it makes the show a little more special. It is always fun to see the different interpretations of popular patterns whether the maker chose to replicate or give their own signature to it. I also look for new to me techniques. Because I like to interpret nature in stylized form with fabric I especially liked the technique for giving dimension to the flowers in the photo below. I had designed a machine applique bouquet this winter and wanted to make again using wool fabrics. I think there may be a place for this technique to give even more dimension to a wool posie.
