Now that the voting has been done and I do not have to worry about publishing too early, I can show you what I completed in early January.
The Canadian Quilt Association puts out a few challenges each year and this year I joined my Quilt Guild sisters in doing something with a Kona green fabric that also followed the theme of 'Gateway to Adventure'.
I have always been a bookworm and definitely get lost in my books. It's like I'm right there with story, watching it happen! So I made a book shelf of SOME of my favourite books going into a leafy background to explore.... The highlight is my favourite: Alice in Wonderland cover that I got permission to print and place in my quilt.
This was the first time using a light box to trace the fonts with paint and marker onto fabric. Some books have a distinctive font, like Martine, Asterix, Disney and Harry Potter. Yes, I am bilingual and still have a warm space in my heart for those childhood favourites.
This is only the 3rd or 4th quilt I quilted myself, but I got brave and tried to stitch some words in the background....
