“Exotic Wildflowers” by Mary Metcalf

The very talented Mary Metcalf used 5 of our recycled silk sari scrap packs, with some left over!, to make this brilliantly coloured 1m x1m square quilt. Crochet flowers and wool leaves, plus lots of close quilting and pin-tucking for texture. Mary said it was “Lovely working with the silks once I had backed them with a light iron on interfacing.”

The quilt has been accepted to the Expertise Events – Tradition with a Twist competition and will be travelling around Australia and NZ until December 2016. You will be able to see it at the Hamilton Quilt & Craft Fair in September.

Thanks Mary for sharing your photos!
