Nearly time to reveal the next topic

Today is the 29th- not long to reveal the next topic- want a hint? Think lots of colour!
I havent touched my quiltlet since before Christmas but tomorrow is the day for some additions which will be made seperately then quilted on. No photoes but I do hope you are very curious! Some lovely hints on our Art Quilts Around The World blog.

Try again- nearly time for our new topic!

It is nearly the end of December and so it is almost time for me to reveal the topic of our next little quilt! I will put this on Facebook so that only members will be able to access it. A hint?  Think lots of colour!

Some hospital quilts

Working on my new challenge today. Some edges (borders?) applied. Looking OK I think. Need to think of the new challenge topic for the end of the month - thinking ?? or maybe ???
Trying to finish a few UFOs at the moment. I collect scraps and make quilts for hospitals - not art quilts, just simple scrap users. Need to get a couple quilted and out of the house!
My local quilt group had our Christmas breakup last night, we handed 31 quilts to our local hospital for stillborn babies. Two representatives from the hospital told us about the very supporting role they play. Really sad.
Great dinner though! I ate lamb shanks, so tender! and delicious. Hope to go to that restaurant again.
A couple of my hossie one finished, second to be quilted.

New challenge

It has been awhile since I communicated on my blog!
I am not so good on the computer, surprise, surprise.
A little tease about my new challenge - love the plenty of time to finish it.

Sweet Memories of Mum

This is Sweet Memories of Mum. I really like it but it is not really 'arty'.  The photo aws taken when Mum was 18.   

Another Art Quilt

Well, this one is arty! It is actually many shades of orange/tan inspired from a picture found in a newspaper mag many years ago- perfect for this project. I used paper peicing for the outside steps, then several rows of curved piecing then I appliqued the small creamy centre. I coloured the centre spiral and one other piece of fabric with my inktense pencils then added a border. I like it very much.

It has been awhile

A new reveal today for Art Quilts Around The World. Not really happy with my effort- far to traditional, not arty at all. A Victorian crazy style hanging 'Sweet Memories Of Mum', nice but not arty, no time to make another. Just two more in this series- i am hoping someone takes the group in hand and revs us up! Need to learn photos again with this new computer!
