Through the Window

The 2nd challenge for the International Quilt Challenge has just been announced - it's "Through the Window". I actually quite this like this theme, and I have a number of photographs of windows so have plenty of inspiration to work from.

Light and Shadow Challenge

I'm a member of the International Quilt Challenge group, and for our 1st challenge we had to create a quilt on the theme of "light and shadows".
The deadline for the 1st challenge was today. I'm just after posting my challenge piece over in the International Quilt Challenge blog.

My piece was based on a photograph I took in Fuengirola, Spain while on holiday there a few years ago. One of the footpaths in the town had a number of coloured concrete balls all the way up the street which caught my eye. I've always meant to make something textile-related using the photograph, so this challenge was the perfect excuse to use the photograph.


Here's the original photograph that was my inspiration for the light and shadows challenge
