The third focus on students to completing the level 2 City & Guilds Patchwork & Quilting course is the work of Sarah Payne.
Sarahs patchwork project is a wall hanging inspired by Peterborough Cathedral. The graceful curving lines of the architecture provided a good design source for this beautiful wall hanging. Using the same block pattern in different sizes and orientations has makes it dynamic and free flowing. The echo quilting adds to the effect.
The fabric was hand dyed on the course.
I can certainly feel the soaring arches of the ceiling when I look at it.
Sarah's love of peacocks was the inspiration for this unusual peacock cushion which shows her creative use of appliqué, 3D and raw edged.
The choice of colours add a wonderful vibrancy to this cushion.
Congratulations to Sarah on completing the level 2 course.
