Home Again

'Chained' has arrived home.  This was my entry into Aotearoa Quilters 'Connections' exhibition.  

For the past 12 months or so it has travelled around New Zealand.

It also appeared in NZ Quilter magazine (see post here).

The quilts were all 60cm wide by 120cm high.  The chains were coloured with paint sticks and had an extra layer of boofy polyester batting. The quilting pattern also helped the chains to 'pop' from the surface. 


After Paint sticks had been applied.
Quilting in progress, to help keep the quilting horizontal, I marked lines at regular intervals.  I probably used a Frixon pen.
