“Peace by Piece” Art Quilt has been shipped…..

Firstly Happy New Year to you all….may it be a healthy and creatively enjoyable new year….. my latest art quilt,”Peace by Piece”, has left the shores of NZ to be exhibited at the Blessington Quilting Academy in Brisbane, on 11/12th Feb 2017.

This art quilt design is the continuation of the Peace Lily theme which began with the small quilt entered in the Aotearoa Floral Challenge.  The title is a little play on the ‘piecing’ terminology of quiltmaking but as artists, as quilters, maybe piece by piece we can make a difference.  Change the world one quilt at a time! I enjoyed every bit of the process in this quilt; working out the symmetry, the colours, what flowers and foliage to use; pushing the peace lily design; and finally the quilting. There is a small amount of hand colouring in the peace lilies.
