QuiltWest 2016 Wins

QuiltWest has been and gone and I was lucky to win a 2nd and 3rd prize at the show...

'Just Peachy' started life as a class sample and was pulled out whenever I was teaching hand quilting. At some point someone asked why I didn't finish it and eventually I did! Once I got going I loved doing the heavy stippling and also using the peach coloured thread gave that hint of peach colour to a white wholecloth quilt. It only measures 16" so the prairie points were a challenge!

'Fair Trade' was a continuation of my portrait quilts, machine appliqued and quilted. A total opposite to 'Just Peachy' which was entirely hand stitched. Both took a long time to make!
