Australia Wide 7 Success

I have been a member of the Australian  and New Zealand Art Quilt Group, OzQuilt Network for a year or so now.

When we first went into lockdown at the end of March, I decided to try and make a quilt for their next touring exhibition, called Australia Wide 7. The quilts tour to various galleries for two years and are quite compact, only 40cm or 16" square.

I was absolutely thrilled to get the notice that my quilt was accepted to be part of the exhibition. Apparently, they received 83 entries and 37 were accepted.

I didn't take many progress photos but I did find one where I was deciding on the placement of the circles.

Here is a detail photo.

It was an honour to be selected, especially as I am one of the new kids on the block, art quilt wise.

Bye for now,

Congratulations Linda! You pack so much into a small space. Your quilt is beautiful.

Thank you Wendy, it was enjoyable making a quilt that small size.

Congratulations! A much-deserved honour for sure. It will be hard to say goodbye to it for two whole years though.

Thanks Magpie Mumblings, I just hope that the exhibitions can go ahead.
