Fabric, wool and haberdashery
Makower “Radiance” is a modern and vibrant collection by Beth Studley, based around antique crochet and lace.
The addition of colour to the traditionally monotone lace outlines gives a radiance and depth beyond it’s roots. The “strippy” stripe is reflective of old lace trimmings and can be used in this way to embellish clothing, decorate projects or cut up to create modern strip quilts.
This variation of the Makower Radiance Quilt, was adapted by Jackie to use the fabrics in the range that were available at the time. It was sandwiched with cotton bump and backed with sheeting. To finish it was machine quilted shadowing the zip zag lines of patchworked fabrics.
