In this fascinating DVD, Jenny shows how you too can take pattern design elements from both traditional and contemporary quilts to create a beautiful and unique quilting pattern for your next project, whatever its size and shape.
Starting with a look at some of the beautifully made antique quilts from her collection, Jenny describes the origins of quilting, and how inspirational designers through the ages have influenced her own designs. She also offers a glimpse of the huge archive of quilting design patterns that she has collected over the years. Using simple and easy-to-learn techniques – and not much more than some paper, a few coins and a ruler – Jenny shows how to draw some of the classic quilting design elements such as the feather, rose and cable. She then shows easy techniques for transferring the patterns onto the fabric, and the stitches to use when quilting. Finally, Jenny gets you started on your own with some simple projects designed to get you quilting confidently.
If you thought that designing your own quilting patterns was beyond you, Jenny will show that with just a little practice it is not only simple, but enthralling, engaging and deeply satisfying.
Join Jenny again in ‘Quilts Uncovered 2 – Practical Quilting Exercises’, where she’ll take you through designing three lovely journal quilts, a stylish strip quilt and an adorable cot quilt.
