Red 12x12 - all three of them

Aotearoa Quilters (AQ) RED exhibition will be held during the quilting Symposium in Taupo next month.  More information here in an earlier post.

In total I've entered three, here they are:


Each quilt is being sold for $150, any not sold at Taupo will be exhibited (and available for sale) in Hamilton during AQ's annual exhibition at the Craft and Quilt Fair early in September.  

The zigzag or chevron quilt is paper pieced from a pattern I downloaded from Craftsy.  (Sharp Chevrons from  Anna - Six White Horses patterns). 

The centre quilt is blanket stitched sari strips onto woollen felt.

The doily quilt is my first effort at quilting a doily onto a background using Cindy Needham's quilting for inspiration.  

Somehow (?!!?) I managed to make it not quite 12" square! ironing the living daylights out of it didn't increase it enough.  A friend suggested attaching a twisted cord around it - it is now mostly 12" by 12".
