A Corner of my Garden
Queensland Quilt Show is over for this year. This is one of the quilts I had on display.
I took a photo of a corner of my garden, (the name of the quilt) and made this quilt from the photo. I made a few changes to the original photo and added a few extras, like the gum leaves hanging in the corner. I'm surrounded by gum trees and just needed a few gum leaves.
A large gum tree snapped in half during a storm last year thats why the tree trunk doesn't go to the top edge.
I bleached the lines in the plants using a tiny paint brush and was hovering at the sink ready to plunge them into water when the bleach had done what I wanted it to.

Busy Day Cutting Out
Lots of cutting done yesterday to get strips and squares done for a fabric club to add to my website. www.rosdye.com.au
I loved playing with the fabrics and seeing all the colours and textures. A feast for the eyes. It was more fun arranging the squares for the photo, lots of trouble with my digital camera though, it just doesn't want to focus these days and I lost count of the number of photos I actually took and had to delete due to being blurry.
