Clamshell Quilt Guild Night with Karen Eckmeier

Karen Eckmeier was our guest quilter/teacher this week. She brought several of her quilts to show us her raw edge machine applique technique.

The first 3 photos are from her Village collection.




From her Mandala collection

This larger, Paducah Quilt Show winner, was quite stunning.

Karen also showed us some of her mini-quilts, Accidental Landscapes. She taught a class in this technique.

What a great idea using lace for tops of waves breaking and the sea foam! Love it! Haven't tried it, but soon, I have a picture and gathering material.
