2009 Sydney Show...1st Prize "Simple but Effective"

This quilt won first place in the NSW Quilters Guild Show 2009  in the Mixed techniques-anything goes category. I spoke to the judge after the show and she told me it was a stand-out in its category, so that makes all the blood sweat and tears worth it

Simple but effective, was created from a piece of curtain fabric that I found in a remnants bin at Lincraft Miranda. Something appealed to me, I think it was the amount of quilting space available. I used thick poly wadding so the final appearance was "Trapunto". I then coloured and set with watercolour pencils in the outer border and applied many pearls and crystals. I love "Bling"...



Four Frolicking Fat Fairies (FFFF) toured the country in 2009.

"FFFF" was a finalist in the Australian Patchwork and Quilting Magazine Challenge in conjunction with The Australian Quilt Convention that took place in Melbourne in 2009. The theme was "Fantasy"... I had hand-dyed some cotton homespun with Procion Dyes and the fabric was left hanging on the curtains in my workshop, for inspiration. One evening whilst looking at this fabric the fairies appeared ... my friend couldn't see them so I drew them on with chalk .. the fabric was then stored for a few years and when the challenge appeared in the magazine those fairies immediately sprung to mind, and thus the frolicking fat fairies were born. The Fairies have been displayed in Melbourne, Sydney and will be appearing at all the shows around the nation that feature the APQM Fantasy Challenge.
