A SnowFlakes Chance in Hell
I just had a good look at the photo of this on the web - oh yuck! I'll try to get a better photo and post that!
I did manage to get this quilt through my little Elna sewing machine, some how! The background is quilted with flames.
You should have seen the quilt that won the challenge - TQG challenge - Kaleidoscope. From memory it was turtles - just brilliant. Can a Tassie quilter out there help me here? Julie needs to see what can be done with this block!
This is my quilt, "A Snow Flakes Chance in Hell"! I made it in 2005, I think. It might have been 2006 or 2007. Too tired to go look. I had no idea what I was taking on when I started it. I think this is the only quilt I have made that I actually had a design for before I started making it.
It is a Kaleidoscope quilt.
It is 2.15 meters in diameter - the blocks in the quilt are 6" square. There are nearly 2,000 beads in the centre!
This is a photo of the beading partly done. Julie, if you look closely you can see the block!
The quilt still partially beaded - a bigger view.
The quilt on the eightball table (in my sewing room). Well it was my sewing room until we sold that house 3 years ago. It was a really good room but very, very cold - so was the whole house. That's why we sold and moved on. One of the QDU Birthday chats, Anjii sent me a prize for bravery! I was sent two FQ's of chillies and other things hot! I nearly froze my tail off ! "Snowflake" was on the eitghtball table as a work in progress that night!
