Bunbury Quilt Challenge 2018

This year the theme was 'I like ...' and the fabric provided to be used in the Quilt was of a lovely creme colour.

A couple of years ago I went to Pemberton and saw a beautiful Possum at night time. This inspired me to create this Quilt 'Bush babies'.

 

The background is done with a technique that Jan Krentz uses and is entirely made of diamonds in various colours. The tree and plants, rocks are all rawedge applique. the Possums are rawedge applique too and are enhanced with fabric paint and merino wool thread painting. A new technique I tried out and absolutely love. Some hot fix diamontes and small yellow pompoms were used for embellishing. 

All of the Quilts are currently on display at the Bunbury Art Gallery. Make sure you go and see them!
