Quilting Tales - Susanne Pickup

Welcome to Quilting Tales brought to you by Bernina UK.

This is our latest instalment in our continuing series of video interviews with quilters who would like to tell their story and share their passion.

Explore the inspiration behind Susanne Pickup's quilt, “Mackintosh – A Celebration of 150 Years”. As a huge fan of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and a member of the Mackintosh society in Glasgow, Susanne celebrates the 150th anniversary of his birth with her quilt. She experiments with many different quilting techniques such as reverse appliqué, couching and trapunto as well as computer printing. We love that the colours used in this piece reflect the colour schemes in Mackintosh’s own designs…we hope you enjoy Susanne’s tale.

(This video was filmed by Bernina UK at The Festival of Quilts 2018.)
