Self portraits

My local Art Quilters group- we are just five- meet irregularly! and get up to a bit of mischeif! This time we were to portray ourselves in fabric, the reveal is tomorrow and mine is not yet finished! I was not quite as enthused as the others as we had had that theme for Art Quilts Around The World for our last challenge. Of course that one could not be used so another had to be done. Photo when finished! I have been busy though with a couple of baby quilts (Oops! forgot a photo of one, will take a shot of the second.) First one went across the ditch to cousin in NZ. I've finally started Samantha's fortieth birthday quilt. She's nearly 47 now!! I made her a Hidden Wells as a 'clayton's quilt' you know- the quilt you have when you havent got your quilt. Fortunately she loves that one. The other couple of projects that I am working on are: a QAYG in greys with brights for a male friend who is in a nursing home and an Australiana for a cousin living in London. For this one I've used Jannie Lees' koalas from an old Down Under Quilts mag, and I think I'll bring it up to size with blocks by Margaret Rolfe. It is looking good so far- willattempt photos soon. The latest AWIAQ reveal is 31st March. 'Different' Mine is finished and I like it- always a bonus!
