I couldn't believe it; I haven't won a prize in the AQS shows for years.
Yesterday I got the good news that my quilt The Bleaching had won 3rd place in the Pictorial Wall category. What an honour and a thrill.
The quilt is about how Coral Reefs are suffering with higher temperatures which is causing the coral to bleach or lose colour and turn white, after a while it dies. I wanted a happy ending to the story though, so in the last section it is the reef regenerating.
Here are some detail photos.
I really enjoyed making this quilt and I'm happy that many others seem to like it as well.
Bye for now,
