River Thames Heron
I am a member of the Thameside Quilters we have been invited to make quilts for a special exhibition to promote our group at the annual Sandown Quilt Show held at the end of June. We decided on the theme 'The River' as we meet in a church hall right on the River Thames. I don't normally enter competitions and have to admit that I am a little nervous about my work being on display, but as it will not be judged I decided to give it a go :) I had a photograph that my husband took of a Heron sitting on the lock sign on the River Thames near Windsor and decided to use that as my inspiration. I also had an applique pattern of a heron by Eileen Campbell that I altered considerably.
HERE if you want to come along :)
