Cynthia England Lecture - Creating a Pictorial Quilt


Cynthia's hallmark is   realistically detailed pictorial quilts. Using skills she developed as a   commercial graphic artist, she creates quilts depicting some of her favorite   subjects: flowers, nature, antiques and architecture.


After using applique to get the realistic effect in her early quilts, Cynthia gradually devised a   machine piecing technique she calls Picture Piecing. This technique   breaks the design down into pieces that can all be sewn using straight seams   and allows her to include intricate details and shading without a single set-in   seam.


Cynthia's stunning quilts have been winning 1st place ribbons at local and national quilting events since 1991 and have graced the pages of many quilting publications.  She comes to us from Dickinson, TX.
