Feathers 3 - this was made to enter into the AMQA Challenge 2008 where it won a second prize in the pieced star section. It was quilted with the help of various rulers and templates to get the initial shapes, and then the feathers and other fillers were quilted freehand.


Magnolia Magic - This quilt is quilted with a serpentine feather design in the outside borders; with crosshatching between the blocks and an original and intricate feathery design in the centre of the quilt. The fabric in the outside border is the same fabric as is used in the pieced blocks. The quilting designs in the blocks and outside border are from a set design by One Song Needle Arts (Cristofer's Dream) - www.onesongneedlearts.com - and stitched using the Statler. All other quilting is freehand with the use of templates and rulers.

This quilt recently won 1st place in the Custom quilting section of the Australian Machine Quilting Exhibition (run in conjunction with the Victorian Showcase) in Melbourne.


   

"Floral Star of 2006" - juried into AQS Paducah show 2007 as a semi-finalist.  This was my second lone star quilt (which got a little out of control size wise - it is 2.54m square) which I made when my husband was ill in 2006.  The precise cutting and stitching kept my mind busy!  It is heavily quilted with feathers and curves.

This lone star design was made for my husband when he was ill - his choice of design and he wanted vibrant colours!  The yellow and orange in the middle make the design "pulse" when you look at it for too long.  It was quilted with hearts (for love), and different fillers in the outside black border.

JAB 3 Tiger Stripes - made in 2007 by Julie Cox, designed by Ann Visman and quilted by me.  It has curliques and butterflies on it, and embellished by heat set crystals.  The pics are a bit blurry (sorry), but I will get better ones now that it is hanging at Ann's house.

Feathers 2 - this Mexican star was made from a pattern by Marsha McCloskey from her "Feathered Star Quilt Block 1" book.  I have always wanted to make one of these blocks, and it has come out nicely.  It is trapuntoed using the cut away method, and heavily quilted with feathers using Bottom line thread.

"Fugly quilt" - made by Julie Cox and quilted by me using lots of different threads, including metallic gold.  Julie hated all the pink and gave it to me, along with all the scraps, so I quilted it and entered it in the Sydney Quilt show in 2006 without telling Julie.

JAB 2, made by Julie Cox, designed by Ann Visman and quilted by me using more feathers and feathered heart motifs.  Each of the white flying geese have a piece of pellon fussy cut behind it to add bulk and to minimise any purple showing through.

    "Bright Jewels"
This quilt was made using 9 patch blocks received during the 9 patch swap within the Scquilters internet group. It has been hanging on my wall for a while now, but was finally finished earlier this year. It is quilted using both computerised designs (Anastasia triangle design from
www.onesongneedleart.com) and freehand feathers. The threads are very bright and show up beautifully on the back (which is plain black).
