This quilt won First Art Techniques and was a fun quilt made after being inspired by Jane Sassaman, an original design of large spiky flowers ?weeds! heavily machine quilted in a variety of threads over the top, with some sparkly iron on sequins to shine, my heated appiicator broke, so I ironed them on - seemed to do the trick. The spotty fabric I won a number of years ago in a quilt show in Tasmania, it has served me well and is a great fabric to use.

The mandala I started briefly in a class with Kim Bradley, I used a drawing from a childrens website of copyright free mandalas designs as a skeleton, then contiuned to draw and expand the idea. It is one piece of Lisa Walton hand dyed fabric, stitched on my beloved Bernina (which is overdue for a service), then coloured with Faber Castell watercolour pencils dipped in fabric medium. There are better pencils and pens for this job, my aim is to do some research over the next few months and find out all about fabric painting etc. Trouble cropping this one, but have to go to work so cannot linger on a silly computer program! This quilt won Ffirst Small Quilt.
