There are some gorgeous quilts in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. Thankyou Amy Have some fun, Meet some wonderful Bloggers and take yourself through the virtual Quilt show.
My Quilt is called “From Me to You The Red Flowering Gum”
This Quilt was made 8 years ago. This was actually meant to be the back of the quilt and a 70th Birthday present fro my Mother. The front was a gorgeous Logcabin QS and it took a long time to make as the centre is a square in a square and it has maple leaf borders. Mum said at the time I would so like a feature back and silly me suggested that I go and do a workshop on Dyeing. Mum Wanted Muted colours.
I had always been inspired by the gum tree in the back yard and the gorgeous Gum blossom so thought I would experiment, Afterall it was only the back. Well you guessed it Mum preferred the back to the front and requested that another ‘Back ‘be made. I dutifully dyed another back I still have this gorgeous LogCabin QS Quilt that is a top! Someone talked me into entering it into a Quilt show and would your believe it got a second that year in the Traditional category so Mum had an added present.
The Moral to the story is don’t be too scared to give something a go and don’t underrate your work. Obviously this quilt wanted to shine as it was never meant to be a back.
The Photos are not the best as these were taken a long time a go with the old camera.
Have a Great Day All Cheers Lynne
