I’m working on a new filing system for my old projects and re-visiting past designs and bringing them up to date.
They are very different to my current designs and I love the comparison. They bring a smile to my face.
This first series was one of my first teaching jobs and I was asked to design a stained glass project for a small town in the outback of Australia.
Can I say it was almost 20 years ago now.
I took inspiration from the colors of the opals mined in the towns as my guide and the entire quilt is foundation pieced. I had to hand draw all of the patterns. Gulp. However, I look at them with a sense of pride. I have over 45 patterns which need to see the light of day. Most of them have never been published.
However, I also worked on this project this afternoon too.
So different, but still Pam.
Starting back on the creative road, I’ve been working on the 12 days of Christmas, Australian style. I may only get four blocks designed because I’ve rejected a few ideas.
This one is a reject. I changed Genre’s and I may only get to “four Koalas Cuddling” before Christmas. However many of you have requested the pattern. I will put it into a PDF for you to download as my Christmas Gift to you.
