Visitor to the Appliqué Special Interest Group

Waverley’s Applique SIG meets once a month and in August we were very fortunate to have Veronique Diligent of Wattlebird Designs visit us.


Veronique started quilting about 10 years ago and has developed a passion for needle turn appliqué. She has many original designs and loves dots, so lots of tiny circles appear in her patterns. During the visit Veronique showed us so many beautiful quilts and happily talked about her design process, fabric choices, colour layering and trapunto.

It was wonderful to get up close to such beautiful work and Veronique was also very interested in the members work.
