Catching Up

Now that I have a lovely new camera I can catch up with sharing pics of some of my projects.

This is my March Journal quilt. The technique for the month was *abstract from photo* and the theme was *reflections and memories*. Our clocktower won an achitectural award in March so I chose to try and abstract a photo taken last year when the new lights were officially turned on for the first time after a major refurbishment (to earthquake proof the tower). The clocktower is actually white and very solid looking but I chose to just use the colours of the lights. The shiny patches are angelina which is a bit more subtle in real life and is meant to be rain in the sky and puddles on the ground.

This one is my first village quilt after hearing Karen Eckmeier (check out her website here) speak in February. Another village is in progress and nearly finished, and I'm even more pleased with it because I changed some of the techniques.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Very cool quilts! I was just looking at that village pattern yesterday and thinking that I want to make something like that. Yours looks great -- curious to see what you do differently on the next one.

  2. My talented friend has been very busy!!!!
    How about posting a pic of the light tower?
    Bet the abstract looks great in reality too - makes me wanna come visit ... LOL

    The village is fabulous - I'm off to look at the website right NOW!
    hugs to my friend
