Mary Gamester

Paintings Transferred to Fabric for Quilting.

Mary is a patchworker and quilter. Currently her passion is for transfer painting. She paints on paper and transfers her designs, with a hot iron, to fabric which is layered up with wadding to quilt and embroider her designs.
These paints give a vibrant and exciting quality to Mary's work as there can be an unpredictable result in the transfer - rather like pottery glazes in the kiln! However this is a wonderful way of getting a very precise and detailed design on the fabric or something entirely free, exciting and vibrant.
Visit and see not only the magic as she demonstrates but also many examples of this technique from larger wallhangings to cushions and bookcovers to small cards.
