Irene will present her lecture:
My journey in quilting
choosing fabric for quilts,
prepping your complete quilt before sewing –
and I share a Powerpoint of my quilts.
Irene’s bio (people who have seen her lecture say she is very entertaining)
I live in Melbourne, Australia. I have been quilting for the last 30 years and enjoyed and learned all techniques, from machine piecing, English Paper Piecing, Foundation Piecing and Needleturn Applique. I started designing my own applique quilts in 2007 and was asked to teach my first quilt. I haven’t looked back since then.
I enjoy teaching all aspects of needleturn applique and instilling in quilters the love for needleturn applique. I try and run my classes as sit and sew sessions where we have a fun and relaxing day, chatting to friends as well as learning new techniques or perfecting on learned techniques. I am now expanding into prepared edge applique as well as my version of “template” applique. I teach all the shortcuts that I’ve learnt over the years – mostly from making mistakes along the way and having to re-do sewing over and over.
I have been extremely fortunate to have had a book published by Quiltmania in 2015 – called “Focus on Applique”. This helped launch my international career.
I have also had some quilts published in magazines in Australia and Europe, recently in Today’s Quilter, a magazine from the UK.
I have taught extensively in the USA, Europe and here in Australia.
