Notes from author and designer, Leonie West:
“I first designed the pattern that I used for Tecoma back in the 80’s. It was hand drawn, hand cut using paper templates and hand stitched. Taken from this original design, I altered it to create a template for quilting and this led to the design of my Tecoma Templates. As I was designing the templates I was trying to come up with a name for the them, I was standing on the back deck of my house, looking over the valley and decided that the templates (not the finished designs) looked like clouds or sheep or a mountain range.”

The Tecoma family of designs can be used as stand alone quilting designs on blocks, borders and whole quilts. Tecoma is a spectacular design in its own right when used alone or Tecoma can be subtle when used to fill an area behind another design. Tecoma is the perfect Template to quilt with Leonie’s TempLeeQuilting Technique as it shows off the feature fabric to perfection. Quilted from the centre out and worked in a circular motion Tecoma is not only easy to quilt, but it is also easy to be creative with.
