I have spent 3 days at the recent craft and quilt fair demonstrating machine quilting- free motion machine quilting that is!
I won a prize at the show- Best Modern Quilt,
it is based on a sewer drain picture that my husband took,
he has a collection of sewer pictures form around Australia,
Spain and France from when we were there last year.
I am basing my new series of work on these pictures.
|Best Modern Quilt|
I make quilts in any style I want, I make what is pleasing to me -
traditional, art or modern- or in between.
I do not want to be categorised as a particular type of quilter -
except perhaps a fun quilter!
|Stones in the Ocean, going to my niece for a wedding gift|
|String 21, made a s a birthday gift for my son, who wanted a scrap quilt.|
Many more scrap quilts to come I think as I really enjoyed the process.
|Tea for Two- this was made form an old tablecloth belonging to my mother in law|
It was great fun to make and I am on the look out for some more tablecloths to rework.
This was fun, I had many comments about the type of thread I use, any bright colour is good! I do not use regular sewing thread, but a good quality thread, and in a fun colour, orange always seems to sew better than white or cream in my opinion.
