Commission Quilt finished

The library quilt is finished and will move to its new home in April. I’m happy with the result and hope the library will be too..

Here is one more teaser:

I also finished a challenge piece for the Canadian Quilter’s Association Conference 2011 which is in London, Ont. this year. The theme is “Quilting in the forest” and I had to incorporate 5 fabrics they provide, and the colours were really not what I usually work with! But that’s the challenge… So I altered the fabrics a bit with the help of some oil paintsticks and leaf rubbing plates, did some fabric strip weaving and raw edge applique on top, and now I like the fabrics.

So, 10 more centimetres of snow tonight… I’m really tired of shovelling snow, considered it’s March 2nd.

Take care
