Day 13 - in which I show off a bit
It was photographed, and published in Volume 6, No. 6 (July 2006) along with the instructions that I had supplied.
It wasn't the quilt that I would have chosen as representative of my work. It's a raw edged, quilt-as-you-go quilt, made entirely from cotton - but not from flannel, as most of these quilts are. There's a small quantity of a commercial Batik print in it, but the rest of the quilt top and backing is made entirely from my hand dyed fabrics.
One thing I remember about making this quilt is getting very sore hands from all the snipping that has to be done to produce the fluffy raw edges.
It's always been a teeny bit of a sore point with me that one of my quilts has been to Australia, but I haven't.
This time round in Oamaru, I'm not living in a stone cottage, but the quilt is still with me, and is used as extra bedding or as a large rug when it's cold.
