"out of Asia" challenge

Yes its been a while since my last post.  Life has become quite hectic as we have house full of guests that came to celebrate our daughters high school graduation.

The sewing room has been converted back to a bedroom and our children have all been shuffled around to make room for grandparents. The sewing machine now sits in the hallway but is still usable.

The screen printing course is on hold until the end of the month but I did manage to finish my "Out of Asia" Challenge today (ok only 3 days late!) http://aroundtheworldin20quilts.blogspot.sg/


This quilt is based on the shop houses that are at Boat/Clarke Quay in Singapore.  The shop houses are along the Singapore River.  The are very bright and colourful buildings.

The school where I was teaching  kids sewing classes has closed for the summer holidays and won't reopen until mid August but  I have got some new students from other schools as well.  That is the good thing about all the international schools here having different holidays!

Really like how you have interpreted the shop houses and their colour into your own design. The quilt looks great.hope the holidays go well.
