That was the latest challenge theme for the International Quilt Challenge and you can see my interpretation of it here.

Liz's piece for the archi-texture theme

I’m sorry I’ve been a bit absent recently but I have been doing a lot, honest!   I think that I’m going through a natural, if long, quiet spell where I’m reading a lot and not saying much, but I’m sure that will change eventually!  I’ve been doing a lot of dyeing and printing and have taken a pile of photos today.  Here is one to whet your appetite…

International Quilt Challenge 2

The deadline for the second piece of work for the International Quilt Challenge is today and I have just written a post on the challenge blog all about it. You can read it here.

The theme this time was ‘Through the Window’ and as you will see from my blog post, my piece turned out differently from what I was originally planning!

I struggled to find enthusiasm for making it but got into it more and more each day. I definitely need deadlines to get me working!

International Quilt Challenge

I’m involved in a group called the International Quilt  Challenge where we take turns to set a theme and all have 2 months to make a small piece based on our interpretation of that theme.  The group has a blog where we document the progress of our pieces of work which you can find here , together with links to the blogs or websites of everyone else in the group.

The first theme was Light and Shade and this is the piece I made for it, which I entitled Murder Mystery.

If you visit the blog page you can read about how I came to call it that!

The next theme challenge is Through The Window and there have already been several interesting posts about how we are thinking of interpreting it.

I’m hoping I will get back to blogging (and actually creating!|) soon – it’s been a challenging and stressful few months family wise (though I’m not sure this year is going to be any less stressful with one son doing GSCEs and another his A levels!).
