Dunescape Quilt Work In Progress

Late last year I began a quilt that started with an idea to play with curved piecing to represent hills at various times of day. Going through the stash, I came up with a handful of blue and neutral fabrics of all different weights and fibre content.

I mucked around with a few sizes and piecing options. Then, when I got it together, I realised that of course it hadn’t turned out like lush, green, rolling pastured hills but more like a coastal dunescape. The colours were just right and the movement of sea, sky and sand was reinforced by my freeform rotary cut curves.

Now I’m madly quilting this top every evening. I have my fingers crossed that it will be selected for the 2nd Modern Quilt Show In Kiama (NSW Australia) coming up on 30th and 31st May 2015.
