As promised, we are going to Sydney, Australia to meet Brigitte Giblin and Kathy Doughty.
Be ready for a completely different universe... or so I thought... full of colours, light, sunshine!!! Life in full bloom.
I thought it was very different from the traditional quilts but there are so many things in common, too! The patterns are not so different. My natural attraction goes to antique quilts using neutral colors. I tend to prefer taupes, browns, faded blues and greys to any other colors. Yet, one of the first big quilt I made was Spring Garden by Liza Prior Lucy using Kaffe Fasset fabric collections. It was not a flashy quilt though! But Kathy Doughty's quilts attract my eye. I like them but I am afraid of using colors in my quilts. I am not creative at all. That's why I went to a class with Kathy. I have learnt a lot. But more about that in the post about the classes.
Enjoy these colourful quilts which are, as kathy says, a promise of joy!
What a fascinating trip around the world! And visiting the houses was not everything you could see at the show.
