Victoria Quilt Guild Show

The Victoria Guild's quilt show opened yesterday and I was there for the entire day, feasting my eyes on over 200 entries, from the large traditional variety to smaller original designs to wearables to a tablerunner challenge to community quilts to cloth dolls to fibre explorations - plus the items for sale in the store and the merchant's mall! I have two pieces hanging in the show and you can see them here: . 'Sea Change' (pictured above) is part of a group of seven fibre explorations hung together, each one made to uniform size, based on inspiration from another artist of any genre, and including a 'green' element. My piece is inspired by Jude Hill (Spiritcloth). Today is also the start of my online course with Jude on 'quilt weaving', and I had that in mind as I perused the merchant's mall, picking up a few silk and cotton fat quarters, here and there (okay - and a few books :)). As I was leaving, I saw a shadow quilt on the lawn - the perfect end to a delight-filled day. Thanks to everyone for all the effort involved in putting on the show, which continues all weekend.
