Houston Silent Auction

I was honoured to be invited to make a small quilt for the International Quilt Association's (IQA) Silent Auction again this year. My quilt Naturally Crazy was juried into the show so I decided to make a small quilt based on that quilt. Here is a post I made about making the quilt.

I finished the quilt and have already posted it off to America.

I decided on a blue border, I like the blue for a change. I usually put green borders around these Australian themed quilts.

Here is the quilt, quilted and finished. It always looks so much better quilted. I added some feather stitch, leaves and french knots around the border. I thought the border looked a bit too solid so I added some piping to the binding. It just adds a nice touch of colour and draws the eye from the inside to the outside and back again.

The quilt measures 17" x 17" and I hope someone bids for it and it goes to a good home.
The Auction is held during the Houston Quilt Show, November 1st - 4th.

Bye for now,
