Bed of Roses
Entry #: QP 2070
Entrant: Kerry Burke
Dimensions: 80" x 80" Bed Quilt
Materials: Cotton fabric, wool batting and cotton thread.
Techniques: Hand appliqué, machine piecing and longarm quilting.
Credits: Quilted by Rose Bell. Commercial pattern, "Bed of Roses", by Sue Garman.
Artist’s Statement: The method I use is called prepared-edge appliqué, which simply means the seam allowance of the piece to be appliquéd is turned over with an iron before it is hand stitched. I make it my personal mission to teach this method to as many people as I can.
