A bit more of the mystery quilt

There's a bow-tie in this quilt!

I've been painting this weekend with my art quilt group buddies (and we still don't have a name!). We all had a go at painting photos, like the ones I did with my family. This was the one my nephew did last year. I'll show you what the women did next month, when they are completed.

My Mum made a lovely scrapbook of photos of my Dad and I really wanted a copy. I suggested that we scan the pages and make a photo book from the scans. It worked out great! We used a Christchurch company, Microfilm.
A liked the way that the stickers Mum used came out in the scanned picture. This was in Malawi, in Africa, hence the animal stickers.

This was the house that Dad built.

This is the weekend for quilt shows. Festival of Quilts is on at North Harbour Stadium. I'm going to have a proper look at it tomorrow. The "Big Quilt" show is on at NorthArt at Northcote. And then there is the Bloggers' Quilt Festival. I didn't enter a quilt this time but I'm happy to promote it anyway. Here is the link.
