Wow, I am back from Symposium on a big high. I got back yesterday afternoon but was way too tired to post. The quilt my friend Janice and I made for the inaugural Human Rights Challenge was one of two joint winners! The subject matter of domestic violence is not to everyone's taste and the quilt is not 'pretty' (photo below) but I am glad we made it. We got our photo in the local paper, so we are world famous in Wanganui! It is the first symposium challenge I have ever entered and the first quilting prize I have won! Janice also won 'Best Overall' in the Hoffman Challenge so we are feeling pretty good right now. I'll ask Janice if I can post a photo of her winning Hoffman quilt.
My 3 day Triptych class with Jenny Bowker was fantastic. I don't have a lot to show as 'product' but I learned heaps. The first day was a series of art-type exercises which for someone like me with absolutely no art training whatsoever was just great. Although we took along inspirational material the piece I am making came from one of the exercises we did. I figure I can make the other whenever I feel like it. I have a hair appointment so I haven't got time to post any pictures off my camera just now. It is going to take me ages to catch up on everyone else's posts, but I am missing keeping up with what everyone is doing. Catch you all later!
