Aussie Challenge



Here's my Aussie Challenge quilt. It won viewer's choice at the Queensland Quilt Guild in October 2005. It's made of hand-dyed batting with random bits of the challenge fabric among others, bits of metal mesh (this was the first time I sewed on metal), & lots of thread painting & hand beading. I'll have to photograph it again on a dark background when it comes home, it'll show up better on black.

I named it "Why?", because so often I've looked at an abstract piece of art, & wondered "Why?". My answer to that question in this case was, "I just wanted to have some fun!"
