I first met Rose Hughes when I spoke at the BAQS Meetup at Fall Market 2013. Rose is an artist whose medium is quilting, and I love her work. It’s thoughtful and playful, just a really great combination. I knew her work before that, though, because I loved her fast piece applique technique and became interested in how I could use it on the longarm, which eventually turned into part of my Creative Longarm Quilting class on Craftsy.
Fast forward to this year, and Rose asked if we could work together on a piece for her new book that combined the technique I worked out for the longarm with her own art, and this book is coming out as we speak! I can’t show you the whole piece (although I did write a tutorial for the background fill), but I can share her own sneak peek of it! I’m so very honored to be part of this group of longarmers, Rose, thank you!
(reading this over, there are a lot of links there. Rose really has influenced my artistic journey!)
