Open Studio - Aliquilts

Just a reminder for those of you in Brisbane that my friend Ali George is having an Open Studio this weekend(24 and 25 May).  Ali lives in the beautiful Scenic Rim about an hour from Brisbane - her address is Aliquilts Studio 169 Niebling Road, Tarome.  Visitors will be able to participate in mini workshops and a community quilt project.

Dragon Fly - "Seaglass" Colour challenge

The last colour challenge the 8 by 8 Group did was based on the colour depicted by "Seaglass".  I took out my collection of sea glass from Day's Bay in Wellington and inspired made the journal quilt below.  The dragon fly wings were painted with semi transparent paint and I used machine outline and some neocolor 1 crayons for highlights.
