Today I did a workshop at the Quilterspalet in The Hague. It was very special. The teacher was Dijanna Cevaal (born in Holland) and living since her 10th birthday in Australia. She is a Textile Artist. Her quilts are very famous, she dyes and prints her own fabrics, what makes them unique.
The technique we learned today is called: Tifaifai. It’s based on Polynesian quilts and free-machine applique. First we designed our own pattern (not ease but great results), and ironed it on the top. After that we start working on our sewing machine, to sew the applications by free-machine quilting. And unbelievable, end of the day I had finished my top.
I think the day was fantastic!! Thank you for teaching Dijanne. Thank you Evy and Petra for organizing this day. In my webalbum (see right in the corner) you can see all the pictures I made this day.
