Irish Tranquility

 Another confetti quilt of an Irish wood - permission given by my very talented friend, the photographer Bernadette Gibbs to use one of her wonderful pictures taken in Co. Antrim.

Jacaranda Quilting Guild, in Pretoria, South Africa had a 'row by row' challenge and I attempted to make a sampler, using a different technique in each row but still creating a landscape. My Dutch friend, Delia's row of miniature houses was an inspiration. This quilt was done just before I started working in Ireland for the first time and strangely predicted how my life would take another direction, heading back to Europe, where my ancestors left centuries ago.
