NEW CANADIAN BOM : Shoreline by Susan Teece

Posted in People of Satin Moon, Techniques and Materials tagged , , , , , , , , at 7:28 pm by satinmoon

Award winning Canadian Artist Susan Teece

has artfully captured the west coast, in a magical and cohesive

new multi block quilt,  Shoreline Stories.

She encourages you to recall playful summertime fun with traditional piecing,

walks  through wild flower filled  rain forest with textural stitching,

historic lighthouses and ocean action with easy fused applique,

lazy afternoons on the links with   raw edge applique,

delightful adventures for the confident beginner in old town,

united by a quintessential  flowers basket.


Patterns and kits  are available individually ,  as a collection  , and soon as a block of the month,

from Satin Moon .

Designing takes place

in Susan’s studio/living room.

Ideas are shaped by her extensive designing background  in the  fashion industry ,  costume design,  display and advertising .

Even as a small child Susan was obsessed with collecting  and  cutting up fabric.

She is intoxicated

and inspired by  fabrics,

and the joy of stitching them

back together .

Heirlooms,

and antiques

inspire and assist.

Her father’s paintings  of Canada surrounded her as she works.

There are always multiple projects on the go
Right now it is one of a kind ,artful  tea cozies for the Glendale gardens
and a collaborative banner  for the Victoria Quilter’s Guild.
But Susan is no one trick pony
Her academic background is in home economics,
and her Lemon Meringue pie is perfection for the palette !
