Today was the day. I had heard that there was a quilt exhibition, using some of the Australian quilting fabrics designed by Leesa Chandler.
The pictures below are of a painted parrot, by Helen Goddard, that was then free motion machine embroidered. It made me keen to keep doing my doodling! If only I could paint like that too.
There was a great variety of quilt techniques and I felt quite inspired to try some of them - at some stage. I am currently looking for some inspiration to get me going again.
The gardens are wonderful too - and it was a nice cool day that made wandering around a pleasure. I took scads of photos of flowers and leaves in the hopes that I will be able to use them to come up with some designs.
