Review from Popular Patchwork, January 2013
Exploring Embellishments is a very gentle and encouraging introduction to enhancing your work through the art of embellishment. Rose Hughes has developed a very effective background piecing technique using a combination of reverse machine applique and couching, which creates a great bottom layer for her designs. She builds up her quilts with simple applique and adds a final layer of extra zing with embellishment. There are six projects included here, all designed and made in Rose's quirky, vibrant style. Each project focuses on a different embellishment technique, using air-dry clay beads, Angelina fibers, chenille stems (good old pipe cleaners really), wool roving or Lutradur. These techniques are handled very simply, so this is a great beginner's guide- a friendly helping hand to learn unfussy, effective art quilt techniques with basic tools and materials.
After 20 years in the corporate world, Rose Hughes jumped into the quilt-art life in 2003 and has never looked back.
Rose loves to share her quilting passions and travels the world providing entertaining and educational lectures. Her teaching topics include Fast-Piece Appliqué, design, fabric painting, color, and all forms of embellishment.
As Rose continues to pursue her art, you may find her quilts in juried exhibitions throughout the world, and you might also see her sharing her work and methods on television and online. She enjoys membership in numerous quilt- and art-related organizations and finds joy in sharing her love of quilting through her blog, Rosehughes.com, and her Facebook page.
