The Long Apprenticeship - by Gillian Arkley
Made using the quilt-as-you-go method. (I absolutely loved this quilt - and really appreciated the amount of work that went into making it, especially as I started a sampler quilt a few years ago and gave up at the enormity of the task! This was just simply stunning. The fabrics that Gillian used were beautiful. Definitely my favourite!
Machine pieced and machine quilted, using over five thousand pieces! Made with batiks and Aurifil thread.
This quilt has been made using silk and calico, and uses at least 30 different sewing machine techniques. The quilt was made as a result of the quilter being on a course led by Pauline Ineson.
