Bits and Pieced

I have just finished ’ Bits and Pieces ’ – a sampler quilt.

It showcases lots of bright fabrics set on a background of various grey prints. With all the differing greys it was great for using up some of my stash. Each block has been individually quilted with its own design.

I have used raw edge machine appliqué, foundation piecing, english paper piecing and simple machine pieced blocks. It is designed as a sampler quilt to incorporate lots of different patchwork techniques.

An Exciting Week

It has been a busy ‘Quilting’ week for me…….AQC in Brisbane on the weekend and back to Canberra on Tuesday to hang quilts in our Annual Guild Exhibition, which is being held at the Canberra Craft Alive event. The official opening was yesterday and my quilt ’Antique French Lace’ was awarded Bernina Best in Show. It was a lovely honour. Thankyou Bernina for sponsoring this award and supporting the Canberra Quilting Community.

Canberra Quilters have a beautiful display of quilts made by many talented quilters.
