The Ekka is on in Brisbane at the moment, and I entered four quilts into the Quilts Across Qld competition. I was fortunate enough that the two quilts below both placed third in their categories, and "Cynthia's Geranium" was awarded Best use of Colour! Very pleased!
I will be doing a Tea and Talk session at the Caloundra Regional Art Gallery on Wednesday 18th June, 10.30 am. You can find all the details on the Gallery website Love to see you there, so book your place!
My latest quilts are finished! I enjoyed making it enough to do it a second time, using different methods. Top one is appliqued and free motion embroidered, bottom one is hand embroidered. I did different quilting patterns in the blocks, which was an interesting exercise. If you really like this, the pattern is now for sale, through Patchwork Angel, and they do mail orders for all of you who don't live on the Sunny Coast.
When: Saturday 17th May 9am-4pm and Sunday 18th May 9am-3pm
My local Quilting group is holding it's
biennial show next weekend. Always a lovely
weekend, hope to see lots of you there!
Shown above is the raffle quilt, "Garden party", which won 2nd in it's category at the Qld Quilt Show last year. All proceeds are being donated to Sunny Kids. Tickets available at the show, along with refreshments, traders and craft stall.
The Caloundra Regional Art Gallery now has an in-store shop, and they have some of my little works for sale during the current exhibition. So if you would like a little miniature and are in the area, pop in and pick one out for yourself.
The Australian Quilt Convention is currently on in Melbourne, and here is my entry into the challenge, this year themed "10".
It's titled Walking Iris, and they were growing by my gate one day, sprung up out of the relics of the previous owners gardening adventures.
I made it as a finalist but didn't place, some other lovely entries took out first and a tied second place, and you can see them all for yourself here , some beautiful work and stiff competition!
I am enjoying my floral phase and will be back at it again soon, busy pattern writing and teaching right now.
