Top Tips Used To Finish Quilts…..

Lorraine Appleton was one of the LINQS members who attended the DH sewing day at Branston Booths recently.  She had gone there hoping to learn some techniques for binding her beautiful quilts and she wasn’t disappointed….”I found the session at Branston Booths really helpful especially Jenny’s demo.  I will pass on the finishing methods to the Textile group I belong to who are doing the project.”

Thanks to the tips she learnt that day Lorraine has gone on to finish her four mini quilts, which you can see below.


Lorraine says “I actually prefer David Hockney’s iPad work to his paintings.  I think it’s the spontaneity of them that appeals to me.  I found four that I particularly liked.  I used silk fabric which I painted with silk paints.  I then bondawebbed a few bits and pieces onto them to add more texture and colour.  I then used embroidery threads and Kantha stitching to quilt them.”
