Curlew Mum with 2 chicks - slightly out of focus - she hissed at me as I walked by. Dad was nearby too - flattened out on the leaves - he knew I couldn't see him!!! At Herston - not 10 minutes from the city centre.
This was my entry in the Qld Quilters' Challenge 2018. - "We're on our Way"
"Grannie's Back" - started in a workshop with Pam Holland at Quilt Encounter 2017 in Adelaide.
This quilt started out as a Mystery Quilt with Sherwood Stitchers, became a single bed quilt that just didn't want to play nicely - the quilting was beating me - so it was put away & brought out at a retreat & opinions were asked for. One suggestion - chop it up! So I did & put back together, quilt as you go & it's now a lovely wall quilt.
Top left - "Jacaranda Time" one of my entries in SOTA18 and bottom right - "Tide's Out" my other entry - really happy with all my quilts.
One of our great-nieces is getting married next year (actually 2 are within 3 weeks of each other!!!!) and this is the RSVP I created. Certainly quicker to go out & buy one but not as much fun. Appliqued on to a colour catcher - haven't decided whether to put it onto card stock or to finish it with a running stitch border & pop it into an envelope. The dots on her dress do sparkle.
