The first of the picture quilts, will tell the story of the first landing at Redcliffe and Skirmish Point (Bribie Island), aspects of Aboriginal History from the local area, as well as flora and fauna.
These quilts are not your average quilt..that's for sure. The quilts will be like a huge painting, but of course instead of paint, fabric will be used....the examples of quilts that I've seen are amazing. They will measure 2.5 x 1.5 metres - each.
Now, those of you who know me, are well aware that I'm 'no sewer'...I'm flat out sewing a button on a shirt..hehehe...so, I'm assisting Dawn Gallagher and Robyn Cutler (2 other very talented artists from the shire) in the drawing and planning of the quilts.
