The new header image above is from my Bunbury Challenge quilt, ‘I like a tight embrace’. The beige and orange motifs are embracing; and can you spot the quilted synonyms for embrace?
Action in the sewing room this last couple of weeks has been focused on getting pieces ready for the exhibition ‘Noongar (Aboriginal) Country: Wetland Glimpses’ by WA Inspired Art Quilters, a group to which I belong. It will be at the Museum of the Great Southern, July 8-29. You are welcome! I will be there July 9 -13 and would be happy to give you a conducted tour – best to email email@example.com first.
An exciting adjunct to the exhibition for me is that I am converting 6 images of my quilts into printed posters. The images address different aspects of traditional Aboriginal culture. My reasoning is the posters would be good in schools and libraries during the annual Reconciliation and NAIDOC weeks. I will try my luck with marketing them by direct mailing and they will also be available through the exhibition. Taking photos that suit enlargement to A3 is the challenge at the moment. One of the quilts is shown below.
