Brotherly love

After a week of not blogging there is lots to tell.
I have spent the weekend demonstrating piecing and quilting at the Cooparoo quilt show, a busy time, interrupted by the Fire Brigade when a light caught fire (on the ceiling) lucky it self extingiushed.... or we could have been in trouble.
This is me (with some of the strips for the quilt hanging behind) ironing with Michelles iron - the second one as the first kept blowing the power! and then this is a close up of the quilt that we made, I have just finished quilting it. A fun easy project, even if some people do not like the brown strips....
It amazed many people when I cut randomly with the rotary cutter, many thought that I was going to cut my fingers off! lots of practice, a firm steady hand and a little luck and all was well. The power of postivie thinking also helps a little!

Isabel needed to make a plaster mask for art at schol, so her very kind brother assisted by being the model, a lot of mess but a gret piece of art at the end, something to keep for years down the track! How nice to see them getting along well.

Textile Art Festival on this weekend, no quilts by me this year, but if I am lucky and get myself moving maybe next time.


  1. Like the quilt now that it has lots more blue stripes in it Jane. May see you at the Festival.

  2. Hi Jane, are you going to show us the finished mask? would love to see it!

  3. The mask is at school as part of a portfolio of work, will post a pic when it is home again! I would like to make a mold of its inside to paint maybe
