I reckon this is about the sixth version of my #stripweavequilt pattern I’ve made... I was going to stop, but the ideas keep coming, so I’ve decided I’ll post a new one here every month or so - maybe sewn, maybe in mock-up form and then add an info sheet to the pattern each time if you’re up for making one yourself. I’m making this one for my nephew, and I’m hoping he’s still into these colours by the time I finish 😳

Big shout out to all the organisers from @sydney_mqg and @wollongongmqg for the huge amount of work they did to pull this show together - I hope you’re all suitably proud of yourselves! It’s so important, in such a small country, that we get to see and SUPPORT all types of textile art.
Plus glimpses of a few of the quilts that hit the spot for me in terms of colour, graphic appeal and rhythm.
MAKERS TAGGED.

EDIT: and a massive thanks to those who facilitated my quick exit in the face of trackwork @louisawright1 @ccbutterworth @orangeslice1949 and especially @aviarose - I made it!

Can’t be there tonight but I’m wishing everyone a fabulous opening for ‘Make or Break’. So much good work! Here’s a sneaky peek of some of my faves but you’ll have to head down and check it out to see the whole deal. All makers tagged.

Big week, HUGE, for ‘I would be art’, my Bauhaus quilt.
Instead of picking her up from the Wangaratta Contemporary Textile Award, she’s staying there for good - being acquired as part of the @wangarattaartgallery permanent collection!!
And the icing on the cake? She’s featured in the latest issue of ‘Art Quilt Quarterly’ as part of a story by @brendagaelsmith on art quilts from Australasia.
"That'll do, Quilt. That'll do." .

Next colour palette coming up! Do you think I might be hankering for Summer? I’m going hell for leather today and tomorrow, then it will be off to Kiama for three days of @modernquiltshowau. Not sure if I’m more excited about the show or the warmer weather 😂

Make or Break opens this week @brunswickstreetgallery as part of the 2019 Craft Cubed Festival program. I’m super excited to have two works in show alongside fellow Tenfolders @korinaleoncio and @jemolsen. Make or Break celebrates the unique in creative communities: how we construct and collaborate to tell our stories. I’m really looking forward to getting along to this 👏🏻

It’s the last weekend to see ‘I would be art’, my ode to the female Bauhaus weavers, hanging in the Wangaratta Contemporary Textile Award.
It has been such a privilege and honour to be included as a finalist in this show 🙏🏻

With the rush to get my second MQSA quilt in the mail (which has now arrived 🎉👏🏻), I didn’t get around to telling you that the #handloomedquilt pattern is now up in my Etsy shop.
If you’re in the US it’s a good time to grab a bargain as the Australian dollar completely tanks against the US.

...and THREE: finding Mindy’s version of the Blue Giant quilt in my feed today! I want to rush out and make an upcycled shirt version of it right away (note to self: you are not allowed to add any new projects to your list!!!)

I have dubbed this quilt The Oregon Quilt. I made it out of fabrics I purchased in Oregon and/or colors and patterns that remind me of Oregon. I absolutely love it. When I miss Oregon I can wrap up in this quilt and pretend I am sitting on the beach in Yachats.
Three things I’m super-grateful for on this bleak, icy winter’s day -
ONE: getting this quilt AND my #sandwmqgpatchworkpals mini finished AND in the mail to @suehmiller for the @modernquiltshowau. I especially love that last second in the clip showing my final quilting stitch 😜
TWO: lunching with fellow Tenfolder @jemolsen for an impromptu art / book swap, and...

I remember going to see the Modern Quilt Show at Petersham Town Hall and being thrilled that I’d finally found my kind of quilts being exhibited in Australia.
Fast forward a few years and I’ve got two quilts showing myself 😊
This time the show is being put on by both Sydney and Wollongong Modern Quilt Guilds and involves a beachside weekend away - what more could you ask for?
One of the quilts I have on show is the original tester for my Handloomed quilt. PDF version of the pattern drops tomorrow 🎉
