St Paul's Quilt Show Ipswich Qld

I was very happy to be invited to display my contemporary and art quilts at the St Paul's Anglican Church Quilt Show in Ipswich Qld.

I chose quilts inspired by workshops with Nancy Crow, Gwen Marston and City and Guilds Assessment Pieces.  I also added art quilts which had been exhibited in New Zealand at various locations in the Wellington region.

Here are a couple of photographs.



The Show is on until Sunday 7 May.

I have had to stop doing the Weekly Art Challenge because I injured my right elbow and have been having physiotherapy on my arm.  It is still painful doing hand sewing and cutting out and I have to keep making sure I do not overuse it.  So may resume later.

My nine Palm Tree blocks - Weekly Art Project

As promised I took a photograph of all nine of my weekly Palm Trees (representing Weeks 5 to 13 of the Weekly Art Project 2017).  They look colourful together I think.  All improvisionally pieced.


I have not decided how I will present the finished images yet.  Still thinking!!!!

take care

Weekly Art Challenge Week 11

Continuing on my theme of interpreting the Palm Tree I have chosen some fabric for the tree that I hand dyed and patterned and was left over from a new small Art Quilt I have made for a challenge called "Earth" in my 3Squared group in New Zealand.  The Reveal is next weekend so I will show the quilt I made after the meet up wish I was going along with my quilt.  I have posted mine this time.

Week 10 Weekly Art Challenge

I am catching up I am up to Week 10 now.  I used my hand patterned background fabric and a reddish hand dye with some patterning.


I am having a busy week catching up with friends and researching for my Course.  I am interested in natural dyeing too so pulling some material out to start having a further try.  Doing a little sun printing too just for fun.



cheers
