2022 Quiltmania Mystery Quilt Designer has been revealed
The 2022 program will feature Irene Blanck, a wonderful Australian designer whom we met at International Quilt Market 2019.
Irene will be using a fabulous line of fabric from Art Gallery, one of our favorite fabric manufacturers.
As always, there will be one fabric that is available ONLY via the kits.
This is a mystery, but we do know the quilt will be about 60" square when finished.
Irene shared this inspiration:
“CLEMENTINE was designed to showcase my love of flowers, vases and birds. I mainly use the needle-turn method for all my applique, but I sometimes now use prepared edge because my eyesight is not always good (at night), and I have arthritis in some of my fingers. I have come to enjoy both methods of preparing my applique shapes. A short video will be included in Part 3 demonstrating my method of prepared edge using Polyfuse applique paper. I chose Art Gallery fabrics for my quilt and have been delighted at the rich colour and design in so many of their fabrics which helped to make my quilt so colourful. There were a lot of opportunities for fussy cutting using their beautiful fabrics. I grew up in Africa and also lived for a short time in India. I was influenced by the riot of colour that women used in everyday clothing, and I am now inspired to make my quilts as colourful as the clothing that I remember seeing.
You will receive 6 bi-monthly installments of fabric beginning (hopefully) in January of 2022. You'll need the six 2022 magazines for the pattern.
