News of a quilting competition coming up - but first some lovely inspiration for you. I know we went to the auctions last night, but I came across this beautifully embroidered quilt today and couldn't resist showing you. The bright stitching around its irregular form which measures approximately just 18" square seems to give it an outer glow. It is lot 383 and it is in the Philip Serrell Spring Sale at Malvern on 10 March. Click here for more details.
So, the competition. The challenge is to make either: a handmade doll with quilt and doll bed or a traditional doll quilt with doll bed or an art doll quilt with doll bed. There will be four finalists in each category whose work will be exhibited at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, TEXAS in fall, 2011. You don't have time to sleep on this job, your entries (and you can submit up to 10 on-line) must be ready by the end of July 2011.For all the details click here.
