Hello again. I found some photos of my quilt in progress and thought that I would document them here. The photo above was taken in a fairly dark front room, so apologies for the lack of quality. I sewed the fabric lengths and patches around the central fabric in rows, but laid them out first to ensure that similarly coloured fabrics weren't sitting too close to each other.
Above and below, pinning the patchwork rows to the main area of the quilt prior to machine stitching.
Above: finishing the back of the quilt by hand. (No wonder my back isn't happy.)
This blog is both a record of my work and an attempt to contribute to the vast inspiration that thousands of other creative people have given me via the internet.
I worked for many years in the fashion industry, designing prints, textiles and developing products for children. I now work as a freelance illustrator and make a variety of work under my own name. Some of the things that I make can be found in my etsy shop and in galleries and stores around Australia.
