County Clare Panel by Karen Styles for Marcus Fabrics - R51 0680-0142
#R 51 6080-0142
The current resurgence of handwork, "slow-stitching" and detailed techniques bring a fresh interest in the art of Broderie Perse, French for 'Persian embroidery'. This style of appliqué employs fussy-cut printed elements stitched to a background cloth to create a custom look. In creating County Clare, Karen was inspired by the extraordinary appliqued quilts of Irish and English women of the 17th and 18th centuries. Her main panel (printed digitally) features beautiful bird and flower motifs typical of broderie perse, mirror-imaged to create movement.
Panel is approximately 43" by 43" (Blocks 8.5")
