Time for your morning cuppa and a look at some of these beautiful quilts.
I can finally share some of the quilts that I love and have huge admiration for.
What do you look for in a quilt?
I look for design, depth, visual impact and meaning. I personally think that the quilting should be outstanding at this level.
This is not the best drawing I’ve done, but I’m working through the process right now. This is a pattern that I will re-create as an appliqué panel, but wanted to see if I could draw a quarter of the image and then see how it turns out when I mirror image it.
It’s an experiment
In January this year, my creative life changed when I purchased the new iPad pro.
I bought the largest screen and the largest memory iPad that I could. Then came the wonderful apple pencil. It really has taken me almost all of the year to work through the applications that work in my favor.
The main one I use is Adobe sketch.
Daylight saving has given me an extra hour today for which I am grateful. We leave for the Caribbean today and I won’t be able to access good internet, so I’m taking the opportunity to post a few more images before we leave. I have more to add, but I don’t have the time right now. Wheat field, Melissa Burdon, Groveton Blenheim, Marlborough, New Zealand.

Here at the Houston Quilt Festival, it’s an event of smiles.
50,000 smiles in fact. 50.000 people fly in planes, drive or come in buses to the George Brown Convention Centre in Houston all in the name of Textile Art and if you need to give it a label. “It’s essential Quilting”
Oh my, its just. Its been a whirlwind of engagements, inspiration and sheer fun. I haven’t had tie to breathe let alone do the blog, so this is the best I can do for today folks. Enjoy.
