One of my favorite new designers is Australia’s, Kellie Wulfsohn, from Don’t Look Now! Her modern patterns give a new meaning to raw edge applique. The bright colored fabric choices make each design bright and cheery. Her machine quilting is to be envied by all of us who wish we could machine quilt using our household machines and her quilting method.
I picked “First day of Christmas” as a starting point. I found the pattern easy to understand and the raw edge applique quite simple. Of course, I sent my pillow top out to be quilted since I know I am not at that level of quilting.
Her new patterns are fun and whimiscal.
The Animal Alphabet would be great for any young child.
Look at the background, she took her favorite nursery rhyme stories and photo copied in black and white and printed on “Printed Treasures”. She then sewed the sheets together to use as a background for her applique. What a wonderful idea. I don’t think I will use Fairytales, but I do have a couple of books in mind that I will play around with.
I’m definitely going to do “From the Heart” and have traced all my patterns for “Oh Christmas Tree”.
“Oh Christmas Tree!” I have also seen this done with a Red Background, just stunning!
