I was given this idea of using my own quilts by Joseph of Dark Pines Photos a very clever ideas person who uses layers and textures and mixtures of other stuff a lot, well worth looking at his posts here. I used to, in another life, teach Quilting both here in Australia and overseas, so incorporating quilts into my images seems obvious now it has been pointed out, thank you Joseph.
The little quilt for this Fridays’ theme “Feet” is below the photo.
A combination of two shots to get both Flairs feet and mine in the same image, hence the line across my feet. Possibly could have shopped it out but obviously didn’t 🙂
This little quilt on the theme for this week ‘Feet’ has Flair and I walking across the grass which is why I had to combine images for the photo.
The quilt for this Fridays theme ‘Tools’ is below the photo.

Inside the shed the tools hang handy with other needed stuff below, sometimes not quite so neat as this, and although the camera cannot lie, you cannot see what I chose to leave out of this shot.
This Friday’s little quilt uses some of the tools found in my shed, simple but covers the theme.
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.
