Serenity Found

 This photo by Betty Seeney inspired my entry into the State of the Art Exhibition (Queensland Quilters) for this year.  It was accepted.
 Torn strips of fabric (different types) all helped to make the ocean.
It will be in Gympie along with the other 43 art pieces from last week in April till the end of May.  Then the exhibition goes to Surat later in the year and will be at the Quilt & Craft Show in Brisbane in October.

2QAQ Challenge

Our challenge this year is related to colour.  So we have been given a colour for each month & can make whatever we like no larger than 10" x 10".  January was orange - below are my pieces.  We only have to do one, but I got a bit carried away - not sure if I will be able to keep up the momentum.

 "Dust Storm" - an A4 piece with an overlay of an organzery(?) type of fabric to give the dust storm effect.
 This is a post card entitled - "Orange Juice".
Another post card - "Bird of Paradise" both cards are fused and free motion stitched.

 The reason we were on this trip.
 The venue at Nowra
 The groom & his boys waiting for the bride to arrive.
 The bridesmaids pretty in blue.
 Mum shed a tear
Then it was done.
