Merelyn Pearce Does Margaret Preston
This post doesn't need much text. Just enjoy the photos! For those of you who don't know, Margaret Preston was an Australian artist in the 1920's (I think that early) and beyond who mainly worked with woodblock prints, so that her art would be more affordable for the average homemaker. Some of her designs were even published in women's magazines so they could be pulled out and framed. Fancy that! She specialised in Australian native flowers and birds, and I have long been an admirer of her beautiful work. Merelyn Pearce has made a fantastic job of turning these prints into beautiful quilts. I can't describe to you how tiny her appliqued pieces are! Just amazing. Anyway, enjoy. Apologies for the not perfect photos. There were so many people milling around, I had to go FAST.
Wow, what an eyeful!
Only other news I have is that I have booked in for a Sue Spargo workshop later this year. How exciting.
