This months product, an iPad cover, was chosen from among the five weekly themes in my ‘A Quilters Project 52’ for November, which were Circles (Nov 1); Hand/s (Nov 8); From The Ground (Nov 15); New(Nov 22) and Australian (Nov 29). I chose Circles, the very first Project 52 for November, knowing I would be called to travel to Sydney sometime this month to help mind my 15 month old grand-daughter when the new baby arrived. This I thought would give me a bit of a ‘heads up’ for actually getting the product finished on time.
This is a combination of 2 photos and although I managed that, my technical knowledge doesn’t extend to getting the same colours on both images, yet! The left hand closed iPad cover is the correct colour.
The quilt for this weeks Project 52 is below the photo.
I struggled with a photo for this Friday’s theme of Australian. I knew what I wanted to do and knew I couldn’t take the base photo this week. So I compromised and used an old image taken on a Sydney Harbour ferry looking at the Sydney Opera House and overlayed the more recent wallabies. Not a good image but the idea of Australian is there. The little quilt below is more what I had in mind but I don’t have the skills yet to do that.
The quilt for this weeks theme ‘Australian’ has some of the most recognisable Australian icons on it. The Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Sydney Opera House and the Kangaroo. I also included an Aboriginal print fabric and an intense blue fabric for the blue skies of the inland.
To photograph Flair with any sort of definition to her coat the background became way overexposed, it was very messy anyway. Adding two of my own granite rock textures solved the problem and I only needed to touch up the eyes and tongue to bring them back. She is now a beautiful 2 year old Australian Kelpie.
The quilt for this Friday’s theme ‘New’ is below the photo.

This Friday’s theme of ‘new’ couldn’t have been timed better. My latest grand-daughter at less than a week old. So new to the world! Taken inside and handheld hence the high ISO, but still pleased it came out so well.
This Friday’s theme ‘New’ and what could illustrate new better than all those things we associate with ‘new’ babies. An easy way out as I can’t draw babies let alone quilt them!
