Anyway, I received my Canadian Quilter magazine in the mail yesterday and remembered that I haven't posted a photo of my trend tex challenge piece that's gone off hopefully to the BC Quilt Show by way of Newfoundland ( a well travelled quilt) to be part of a silent auction.
|Happiness is a Walk in the Sunshine|
The theme is sunshine and vines and we had a kit of 5 fabrics which needed to appear on the front of the piece. I also used 2 additional fabrics (for the sky and water). I used a combination of hand and free motion machine stitching and hand and machine quilting on the piece with some sparkly paintstiks on the water. The inspiration came from a photo of vines growing over an old fence beside a footpath along the Ottawa river.
