A visit to Lower Beechmont

 A visit to Lower Beechmont and the views are spectacular.
 On a clear day - the Gold Coast.
 We needed sustenance after our exhausting drive around - thank you Lajla for a lovely day.

 A visit to GOMA - the Japanese exhibition is interesting even after the third visit.  Love this Combi - for Linda R.
 The inside of the Combi is collaged with fabric.
 Little people - snapped for another friend.
Inspiring design.

2Q Workshop

 A Julie Haddrick workshop through Qld Quilters last month was really great.  Design, techniques & advise were all part of Julie's great workshop.  Above is the is the printing - a result of the stamp I made.

This was a great exercise and some of them might just end up being a Modern Quilt or an Art Quilt.  I was really pleased that I drew the designs freehand.

50th Anniversary Quilt

 This quilt was made for Mum & Dad for their 50th Wedding Anniversary.  It's needle-turn applique, hand quilted.  Can't believe I managed to do it.  It was started in a Dianne Johnston workshop.
There are dates embroidered in each of the blocks that are relevant to their lives and names of family and places they've lived embroidered in the leaves on the borders.  Think it took around 2 years to complete.
