I'm just sewing out my stress.

Looking for a Pattern October 6, 2010

During my time in NY the fall foliage inspired me to try something different.  I remember an episode of Simply Quilts on HGTV with Alex Anderson that used small scrap pieces for applique with black netting.  Saw the episode once, recorded it, got deleted for some reason, and NOW…I CAN’T remember or find the program info. 

Does anyone out there know the name of the technique?  It was an Asian lady on the show that day.  She had made very small scrap pieces and used them to create a landscape scene in “nests”.  She then covered the quilt in a black netting to machine quilt. 

I really want to do this with some scraps and using one of the photos I took for inspiration. 

If you remember, have an idea, have used the technique, or could offer me ANY help, please comment.

    Good morning. I think that the quilt artist you are looking for is MASTER QUILTER – Noriko Endo. Noriko literally paints landscapes with a longarm machine, using thread for colors and stitches for brush strokes. Her quilts have an impressionistic quality about them, reminiscent of Monet, but with vibrant hues.

    Her remarkable color sense was gained from watching her mother knit garments using a large selection of balls of yarn. Since 1985, with the duties of raising a family behind her, she has devoted herself entirely to creating quilts that express her exuberant sense of color and deep appreciation for the bold majesty of mature trees.

    She has also appeared on HGTV and Simply Quilts with Alex Anderson. She lives in Chiba, Japan, outside of Tokyo.
