International Quilt Festival of Ireland.

My Panel for the International Quilt Festival of Ireland.
Here is a close up of the torc I have stitched and then painted with gold fabric paint. I have started to free motion around it in a blue variegated thread. I will highlight the torc further using some gold foil. The picture below is of the whole panel. I have free motion quilted most of it, using different threads and pattern. It has been photographed on the floor and I think it needs to be hanging to get a better view.
You will be able to see more of these panels hanging together at the festival in June.


  1. Wow! That is so vibrant! and I love the torc too, its very clever! I really like the swurl of the curves in the last photo.

  2. Thanks for your comments, I hope you will get to see all of them in Galway in June. I will also have a booth there so be sure to drop by and say hello.
