I am currently working on some new Aussie bird patterns, and have so far painted up a Variegated Wren, a Scarlet Honeyeater and a Spotted Pardolote.
Two of them have been placed on their perches ready for quilting, just the Pardolote to go. I'm thinking about some more birds to do, do you have a favourite aussie bird you'd like to see a pattern for?

Being spring, I decided it was time I visited the Maleny Botanic Gardens . It was well worth the visit, there were flowers everywhere. I was particularly taken with the irises, and this is the first piece I have finished based on the photos I took.
It is appliqued and free motion embroidered, and is being framed. There were so many different coloured irises I had trouble deciding which ones to depict.

I have just finished writing up a new workshop, which will teach participants all the techniques that I used to make Forest Floor plus more. Students will get to make their own little quilt, either a sampler or a full art piece.

I made this quilt especially for the exhibition, and the lovely flower depicted is an Australian native, the Flax Lily. I just happened to have it growing wild in my garden. It was an interesting and enjoyable process depicting a flower with such vertical stalks and leaves, and like most natives, they are a small bloom.
