Flynn Under Heaven's Wings

Well this is what I spent my weekend working on. Like usual, I left it to the last minute and now I'm up putting the entry together. I've taken the all important consideration photo and will get down to some serious quilting in the morning...hopefully I'll be juried in!

Secret Garden on display at AQS

Australian Quilt Show, Young Quilters Award MELBOURNE

I'm very happy and super proud to announce that my daughter came 1st place in the Young Quilters Award for her work, Love Tree.

Here are some pics of her accepting her award, and posing for photographs with a Herald Sun Photographer.

Love Tree was inspired by Kilmt's curvy lines and use of gold

Stenciling !

Patchwork & Quilting Magazine, March 2008

I'm delighted to have contributed to the March issue of P&Q ! As you know, I'm a little biased when it comes to recognising stenciling as a traditional (if mainly forgotten) quilting technique... and I was fortunate enough to have a Stenciling How to featured in this issue too. Nightshade is also featured and there's a great stenciling project (if I do say so myself!).

I've had a few emails from people wanting to know where to start with stenciling - good question! I created the stencil project in P&Q for those interesting in trying out stenciling, as well as those wanting to go one step further...this stencil can be used as a stand alone block or made to contribute to a larger quilt (coming soon in a future issue) if you've wanted to look into stenciling and maybe putting your hard work to good use a little later on, this issue is for you.

Of course, feel free to contact me if you have any questions, I'd love to hear from you.
