The Exhibition: ‘ Colours of my Mind ‘ is already hanging more than a week before I get around to post pictures of the opening. It was a wonderful night that Joke and I shared with friends interested in our work.

International Miniature Quilt Exchange: The Quilt Show

https://thequiltshow.com/daily-blog/142-newsletter/28054-a-quilter-from-rosenallis-county-laois-ireland-a-quilter-from-ohio-usa-exchange-quilts

I was so fortunate to be paired with Sharon Moore from Ohio.

She was so good to enter my Squirrel into the Saunder Village Quilt Festival and sent me my ribbon and pictures this past week. The biggest bonus of the exchange is that I am the owner of a magnificent miniature quilt, intricately pieced!


Wonderful news: Made in Europe 3

The Bell Tower was selected for the Exhibition Made in Europe 3.  I am delighted!

Exhibition with Joke Buursma

On Friday Joke and I set up the exhibition:  ‘Colours of my mind’.  It was hard work but very rewarding to see our art quilts hanging in the Gallery of the Library of Mountmellick.
What a wonderful privilege to join forces with a great artist like Joke and be able to share my passion with others.

I grabbed the opportunity yesterday...did some snow dyeing! Always a challenge to stay patient until the snow melted to see the results.
The sunrise this morning was spectacular!
I am inspired to see how much I can accomplish in the sewing room today.

I started preparing for the confetti workshop that I will give in 2 weeks. Looking forward spending time with ladies of the Northern Ireland Quilting Guild. Today I sorted scraps of colours ( mixing the ‘paint ‘) while thinking of the quilts they were leftovers from.
