Winner of 200th Post Giveaway

Thank you everyone that replied to my 200th Post Giveaway.

I had great fun looking up all the Art Quilters that have inspired you -

Laura and Linda Kenstall
Wendy Butler Berns
Valori Wells
Pat Pauly
Elaine Quehl
Elizabeth Barton
Hollis Chatelain
Caryl Fallert

Every now and again it is good to see what others are doing (and how) to get the creative juices flowing.  My head is now crammed with cool ideas!  Thank you

The winners of the 200th Post Giveaway are:

12 Light coloured fat quarters - Hueisei

4 ice dyed fat quarters - Laura

Congratulations! and I will email you both to get your postal address.

Also this week I completed my challenge quilt for the group - art quilts around the world:

The challenge was to make a portrait and make it no bigger than A3 size.
Check out the other cool portraits too......

The combination of Christmas, going home to NZ and guests meant that I procrastinated over this project until the 30th of Jan (due the 31st) but I did get it done on time.  Funny how working to a deadline is usually a good incentive!

Fusible applique, machine embroidery, machine quilted.  It has peltex inside rather than batting to make it stiffer.  Loved using the New Zealand fabric to represent my "kiwi" ness!

Here is a sneak preview of my next project......

Happy Quilting everyone!
