Imagine sitting in the garden of an adorable British cottage in the countryside, enjoying a cup of tea while admiring the blossoming flower beds sun-kissed by the warm, Spring sun. Karen Cunningham’s book A Ladies’ Garden evokes exactly that same spirit! We are proud to have published her first book in which 15 of her quilts, complete with pattern instructions, are richly accompanied by inspiring photos, bringing a sumptuous garden into your home. Karen has a knack for combining appliqué with pieced blocks in such an elegant way, whether it be as a centerpiece for her quilts or to adorn her organic and wavy borders. English Paper Piecing is one of her recurring techniques and her book includes an entire chapter dedicated to this quilting favorite!
About Karen Cunningham
Karen was born in England and moved to Australia with her family in 1972. Her work is inspired by both the British gardens she enjoyed as a child and the Australian Blue Mountains that she now calls home. Karen’s introduction to sewing began with quilting, taught to her by Karen’s grandmother taught, a technique she mastered before she even knew how to piece a block together. Now she is adept at every technique and has been teaching in numerous shops in Australia for over 30 years! Her works have been featured in various Australian magazine and we are proud to publish her first book.
