Brisbane Craft and Quilt Show

I went to the Brisbane Craft and Quilt Show during the week.  My quilt "African Mahogany" is part of the "Our Wishes for the World" Exhibition at the Show.  Our 13 quilts (there are 13 of us in the Group) were exhibited first in Taiwan.  They were in New Zealand last month and now Brisbane.

Work in Progress - Quilt

I am working on a new quilt using one single piece of fabric I dyed.  Inspired by the Linda and Laura Kemshall(Design Matters TV) I cut the fabric strips and then these into squares and finally into one and a half inch pieces. I matched up colours and made rail fence blocks this is the piece.  I love the colours - my favourites.

Ironbark Arts Newsletter - September 2016

Ali George and I have a new name for our hand dyed and hand patterned fabric - Ironbark
Arts - which we see as a name reflective of the true collaboration between our two Studios Rebecca (Ocean Blue Textile Studio) and Ali (Aliquilts Studio).

We have produced a Newsletter with the first edition emailed recently.  We are currently working on our second edition.  We have included details of our Exhibition Work, Workshops and of course our great Fabric.  If you would like to receive a copy of the Newsletter please send me a message.

Fabric Embroidered Postcards

Time to make and send some more postcards to New Zealand for our postcard swap.  Mine is based on Ali and my hand dyed and patterned fabric which I have embroidered with my hand dyed variegated thread.

WA Craft Show - Fun

Ali George and I had a great time at the West Australian Craft Show last week.  We met wonderful people and our workshops in Stitch and Fabric Collage were well received.  We received really fabulous comments on our hand printed and hand patterned "Ironbark Arts" Fabric.
