Bob James runs workshops on Design and Composition that are very popular and I am told that the people in his classes work very hard.
This first quilt is only very small and the strips of silk are only about 1/4" wide.

In contrast this next quilt is large.

This next quilt was actually in the judged show and won a prize.

Bob James sounds like a very knowledgeable guy and I wish he lived down in Melbourne and could come along to the Waverley Art Quilters.
The other featured artist was Anna Brown, I have seen her textiles in exhibitions for years so it was lovely to see many of them together. She really has found her signature style.
I love her use of black and white.

What is not obvious from a distance is all the stitch that Anna Brown adds to her work.

This next work is slightly different to her usual work but still in her style.

I really enjoyed my time at the Sydney quilt show and I will try and get there every year from now on.
