Members of the 2014 Quilt West Committee put together a display called "CHRISTMAS IN MAY" to inspire viewers to be creative and start making quilted 'things' for their next Christmas.
It was a fun display showing the use of quilts in the home setting at that special time of the year.
I found it absolutely delightful and I congratulate everyone involved.
Indeed a show stopper!
Allow me to share with you.
LIKE THE DISPLAY?
The following did not win awards, but they took my fancy for one reason or other.
OWLS are IN! Everyone loves OWLS these days (or frogs) so it is no wonder that I was attracted to the whimsical OWL TABLE RUNNER made by Lana Lefroy.
Lana said "Inspired by the owl fabric, my love of circles and our very large table. To make it textural and interesting I used a variety of techniques, from facings to foundation piecing. This is an original design."
46cm x 206cm
The following quilts were ones I shared with my Students in the Curve Master Online Course currently being held, so as they could see more quilts using techniques we have been studying.
"ROAD TO THE PINK PUB" made by ELIZABETH HUMPHREYS
illustrates "A wonky drunkard's path to the Old Pink Pub at Whim Creek which is so often hit by cyclonic winds. An original design."
123cm width x 190cm height
"DICED CIRCLES" was made by HELLEN STRATTON
Helen said "Sample quilt trying out the applique and cut circles method to create an easy drunkards path. Adaptation from method by Carolyn Swarts 'Hip Hop' in a quilting magazine."
112cm width x 140cm height
"NOW YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON'T" made by BARBARA MORKEL
Barbara said "The Winding Ways quilt block created circles with the placement of lights and darks - this inspired me to make a quilt using floral scraps from previous projects. An original design."
163cm width x 186cm height
Different colourways of these curved quilts I share with my online students gives them more inspiration for their lessons.
You may join us if you wish.
