Opalessence with Lorena Uriate

Lorena’s quilts and classes are designed to give people the tools to express their own creativity.

During Lorena’s successful show and tell at the Illawarra Quilters Inc. July 2019 general meeting we saw quilts that look great in solids, bright moderns, sophisticated muted palettes and vintage prints, curves and linear designs and those playing with colour and value. So, due to popular demand, we have asked Lorena to share her expertise -

Traditional tumbling block quilts are a firm favourite. Opal Essence incorporates fun bubbles and curves to the linear design, an opportunity to play with colour and value.

It’s a very flexible design – quilt blocks can be appliqued or machine pieced and then machine or hand pieced together.
