‘In the spotlight’ FOQ 2017

This is my first ‘Blog’ post on my website – very exciting!

I thought I would include you on the journey of my latest quilt, I am currently working on a piece which will go into the Festival of quilts 2017. I was very fortunate to be selected to represent region 5 of the Quilters Guild in the ‘in the spotlight exhibition’. This year the theme is “There’s no place like home”.

My initial ideas for this were all over the place, with ideas of wizard of oz, houses, foundations of my house….but i decided to go more traditional and stick with the union jack. I feel this represents my home, i am quite patriotic and i have pride in our flag. Ive used the colours, Red, White and Blue to create a design based on log cabin blocks and pineapple log cabin blocks.

I hand drafted the design on paper and then started to sew!

Its very slowly coming together and i will update my progress on here over the next few months – so keep an eye out.
