Murky Waters

Detail of Murky Waters

My entry, "Murky Waters' into our juried exhibition, SOTA21 - it was selected and hopefully will be on display at the Queensland Quilters Quilt Show in October (we are crossing fingers that this will go ahead).  The inspiration was a perfectly coiled rope on a boat - the rope that helps us if we find ourselves in murky waters & there's always a spark of hope in those murky waters (the red splashes).
Bit deep for me, I know!

Portrait of One Lady

Nothing too exciting has happened this year.  However, our Royal National Show (the Ekka) decided to go ahead with the judging of the Quilts Across Queensland despite the whole show being cancelled (thank you to COVID).  I was really surprised and pleased to be awarded a 3rd in the category - Small Quilt, any Technique.
The background was a tablecloth embroidered by my sister who passed away in 2001.  I cut it up to make a relative square and added the machine sketched portrait of a lady and hand quilted the background.

I like to think my sister would have been pleased with this ribbon too.
