12 x 12
Kiwi Quilters is running a 12 x 12 challenge after the success of the 12 x 12 quilt exhibition at the Hamilton Quilt Show. The original 12 x 12 quilters are publishing a book next year and their work - here - is fantastic.
The November theme was "home". I wanted to use an old embroidered piece to convey happy images of cottage living - reflecting the fact that we are now past the horrors of the major renovation work on our cottage. I do have to say that our house, and more particularly our garden look nothing like this pretty stitched scene!!
I did intend to stitch it in a grid, like Philippa Doyle my inspiration for incorporating embroideries into quilts... but I whimped out. I might still do it if only I can get brave enough.
