Miniature gift – Huge smile.

July 18, 2010

My collection of little treasures

Yesterday at the Quilters Guild of NSW general meeting held at Burwood, our demonstrator was Catherine from Craft Mailbox. The technique that Catherine chose to show us was how to weave fabrics or ribbons to create quilts and home utility pieces, and of course Artist Trading Cards.

Coincidentally this morning I opened a gift that was mailed to me by my country friends (you know who you are). And this is a photo of my delightful woven surprize. This miniature bowl and its accompanying card is so beautifully made, I think from a more complex process than I witnessed yesterday. Gee I have clever friends!


Discovering the power of COLOUR

July 8, 2010

My quilt "Rosalie" is dedicated to my teacher Rosalie Dace.Label made for "Rosalie" quilt - calico painted with Jo Sonja acrylics and fabric medium.The more I know about colour, the more I want to make further discoveries. It is a time in my creative life where I want to dedicate myself to exploring all the possibilities that colour brings to our world. Colour represents life with its myriads of tones and the emotions that are aroused.

In February this year I stated this quilt at Rosalie Dace’s Colour 2-day workshop – it came home with me measuring about 8 inches square. As you can see it has grown to about 2 feet square, having worked on it until I felt pretty happy with the result.
I welcome hearing your reactions to my “Rosalie” quilt.

I have included a small pic of my hand painted quilt label.
