Life long dream

I'd love to publish a book with my quilts in. It's a dream that "won't go away". I have an acclaimed author friend who will write an accompanying story to each quilt. Sounds like an amazing concept to me..... why is life so hectic? will I ever get down to it?

Landscape Photos

As many of you will know, I am passionate about Landscape photography and quilting landscapes. A couple of Sunday mornings ago, I took the Schnauzers, and camera, for a walk. The sun was at the right angle and the reflection of the dead tree is the water is "perfect". I wonder what this will look like as a landscape quilt.....

Images of Sport Quilt Show

Saturday 10 July was d-day. Our quilts were to be exhibited in a local hall. It's quite exciting for a newbie quilter to have a quilt exhibited. It's also wonderful to see how other people interpreted the same theme. I took photos of most of the quilts. So....without further ado...some photos....

The first one is by Judy Zingel titled "Sport Africa". I LOVE the bright African colours.

My quilt called "We Three" is a bit more subdued. There is a story behind the name. For those that don't know, I have 13 year old triplets, 2 boys and a girl. They always spoke about themselves as "We Three" when they were younger. This quilt is made up of photos of the kids doing their various sports.... I am really proud of them. Btw, it's my daughter that plays cricket....:LOL
There were lots of other quilts but I am not sure of the "ethics" involving posting photos of other people's quilts. I'd rather not tread on any toes.
