Art to Wear, Festival of Quilts 2011

You will find the magazine Textile Fibre Forum in the Guild library. In the latest issue1 ; number 105 on page 41, there is a great photo of the Art Nouveau Butterfly by Barbara Mullan. It is a much better photo than we were able to get on judging day (we had no white background). It shows the detail of Barbara's winning entry beautifully.

Colour That Cloth

Check out the QGSA website to see what can be achieved when you attend the 'Colour That Cloth' workshop with Julie Haddrick in March 2012. Don't the Colours look great like this? It's so exciting pulling out the cloth and seeing the results.

You can also download the full 2012 workshops booklet. Thanks to Kay, Shirley & Susan for their great work in bringing us this program of fun and learning across the whole year.

Who was spotted in AP&Q Yearbook today? QGSA, Marion Quilters Circle, the Mental Health Quilts and our illustrious committee members doing their thing at Festival of Quilts 2011. Excellent.
