Hubble- explorations in space

I made for the 2014 Irish Patchwork Society's Explorations exhibition. Silk and velvet were used and I enjoyed every minute working on it.

The Forest

I made this for Jacaranda Guild's 'Square and Rectangles' challenge - of course a forest. The way all the small squares and rectangles came together was a miracle. I got the inspiration during an early morning walk on my way to the Glenbarrow falls in the Slieve Bloom Mountains, Co. Laois. I loved the way the light filtered through the trees and causing  patterns on the ground. 

Still Life

 I made this quilt for a Benatex fabric challenge and my first attempt at a still life.


Reflections was made using only linen and my first modern quilt. I enjoyed quilting on the solid linen. It was part of the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland's 'Patterns' exhibition, 2013.
