As this issue goes on sale, Australia is excitedly looking forward to summer, school holidays and Christmas. Although, we are also in a critical time of this pandemic and many of us are wondering how the Christmas period will pan out.

Australian Quilts in Public Places This exhibition aims to promote quilting as an art form by inviting quilters from around Australia to exhibit original works demonstrating their interpretation of a given theme. AQIPP is a juried, judged and sponsored exhibition. The most recent exhibition was presented in 2019. There were more than 60 quilts selected to be shown, with 150 people attending the opening night and more than 2000 visitors to the exhibition itself.

Artists’ statement My husband designed the mandala, I quilted it and we painted it together. The quilt is dedicated to all our customers and students – every feather is different and unique as are all ‘our ladies’, who are part of our creative journey and who we appreciate and love working with. Materials: Cotton batik fabric, Marabu glitter and metallic liners Techniques: Free-motion quilting on a domestic machine and painting Artist’s statement Like a flower blooming beautifully, I wished to see my dear friend in America again. I wanted to quilt the beautiful flowers that bloom in each season. I made this quilt by carefully writing up the design and choosing the fabrics. I want to continue to make beautiful flower quilts without compromise. Materials: Cotton, wool, embroidery thread Techniques: Hand quilting, hand appliqué, hand embroidery, trapunto,…
