State of the Art Quilt 2017


I entered these two quilts in to the annual juried exhibition of Art Quilts for Qld Quilters.  Only one made it - love to hear your which one you think made it!  Both were machine stitched & quilted and I enjoyed making them.

Qld Quilters' Art Quilters

 We learnt how to make silk paper.
 First we spread out the silk fibres.
 Tulle - wet the silk -
Soak up excess moisture - it's on the line drying (probably dry  by now) - if it turns out OK - you'll get to see a photo.

Highfields Retreat

Last weekend I was an hour west of Brisbane with a few of my favourite people & spent the weekend sewing, laughing, eating & drinking.  I'm working on a quilt for the Qld Quilt Show in October - hope I can keep up the enthusiasm & get it finished in time.

Boonah

 HofM, No: 2 Son & his mate were privileged to be taken for flights in this wonderful plane.  Thanks to Bill at Boonah for his generosity.  Their smiles were wonderful to behold.
Zeus couldn't figure out what these strange things were doing - watching take-off.
