The best news.......
This weekend is the Melbourne Quilt & Craft Show at Jeff's Shed (Exhibition Centre). I'm a member of my local Geelong Quilt Guild and also a little offshoot Art Play Group. We only got together earlier this year to learn and try out new ideas in the Art Quilt area. One of our group Lyn. thought it would be good to do a joint project and submit it for entry at the Show. We did and not only was it accepted to be hung WE WON FIRST PRIZE in the Group Quilt Section. How good is that!!! I'm stoked!!
We made 12x12 inch quilts to the theme of 'circles'. Mine is second from the right in the second row (bright pink background). I used felt as the base and printed and discharged random circles then felted spirals and added some hand stitching and pearl buttons.
They were joined by using metal rings to continue the theme of circles and was named 'Circle Fabrication'. I must thank Jenni S of Jacaranda blog for these photos as I was not able to get to the show myself. Her quilt is the first one in the second row.
