2QAQ Meeting

 Last month's meeting of 2QAQ - Qld Quilters' Art Quilt group. I demonstrated a collage technique - without using fusible web & placing torn fabric, then hand stitching the pieces.
 It's really relaxing & everyone seemed to enjoy it.
One of the girls started a table runner - I believe it's already finished.
Our next meeting is next Saturday, 31st October at BVAC Hub, 140 Weller Road, Wellers Hill.  We start at 12.30pm.  Textile artist, Rebecca Staunton-Coffey  will be sharing her knowledge.  She & Ali George make the most devine fabric.

What would you call this?

I placed scraps of fabric on to Pellon, pinned them in position and started stitching.  It's only around 12" square & I'm not sure where it's going.  I just really enjoyed doing it and I used up a few scraps.

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.
