I haven't posted in a while and have been "gently" reminded by a couple of friends that I haven't (grin). My excuse is that I have been working on my entry for the NANZQ (National Association of New Zealand Quilters) Elemental Challenge. I have been cutting it a bit fine (as usual). Today is Wednesday and the closing day is Friday. Got it finished last night and in the mail today. Should get there in 1 or 2 days they tell me at the Post Office. I hope they are right. Aren't deadlines a wonderful thing? I would never get anything done without them.
The challenge involved interpret the elements – Air, Fire, Water, Earth – in any way you wish in a quilt that must measure 150cm high x 50cm wide. This is an unusual size for a quilt. I chose Air and I wanted to show the idea of the weightlessness of air. It didn't turn out the way I was hoping but since I was doing it I have entered it anyway. It tlooks more like a thunderstorm than weightless air so I called it "There's a Storm in the air". It is my first time of entering a NANZQ challenge so I have entered it in the rookie class. I'm going to be brave and post a detail piccy:
