- Additional information
Designed and quilted by Megan Manwaring, “Appliqué Sampler With a Twist” quilt is an original contemporary appliqué design that is not only visually appealing, but is loaded with techniques.
Megan designed the quilt as a teaching tool in 2016/2017, responding to her students’ wish to start a new quilt that evolved each month. It includes turned edge appliqué, needle turn appliqué, simplified Hawaiian style appliqué, string piecing and foundation piecing. While it was all pulled together into the original layout, many of the blocks would form a dynamic repeated block quilt in itself.
“Appliqué Sampler With a Twist” was awarded Best Contemporary Quilt (Professional) and 3rd place Combined Pieced and Appliqué Quilt (Professional) at the Quilt NSW Sydney Quilt Show 2017.
Since the original self-publication of this pattern, Megan has seen many versions of this quilt made, some taking inspiration from her contemporary fabric palette and others choosing their own palette. With this Quiltmania pattern, Megan looks forward to seeing many more versions.
