There is a set of Steampunk silhouette designs on the horizon. This is the first - a Fleur De Lis. Best known as the stylised lily from many French heraldic crests, its history and romanticism lends itself well to Steampunk.
The Fleur De Lis pattern is available in the shop right now. The set will contain either 9 or 12 designs which I will release over the course of making a quilt with these designs.
Add the needle-turn applique instructions to your shopping cart as well if you would like extra instructions to help you use this pattern.
What is Steampunk? It is a relatively new branch of science fiction and speculative fiction. It is the imagining of an alternate history where we think what would today be like, if technology had continued its focus on steam power and clockwork rather than advances into electricity. It usually borrows heavily from Victorian era clothing and aesthetics including the colours, textures (wood, brass) and technology.
Find out more and take a look at some photos of some talented Steampunk artisans in their costumes on my other blog - The Quilted Hen.
PS. The photo in the navigation bar (at the top of the blog) is a hint of some of the upcoming designs.
