I'm taking a short break from all the people quilts to head back into the bark quilts this week. I'm going to be making three big versions of Eucalyptus Melliodora for a project due early next year and I'm warming up with one that will be for me and our new house (we're building up here in Cairns). It's a bit of a novelty to be making something just for us, although I'm sure I'll end up submitting it into something since I seem to keep running out of quilts to send away. I'm sending off Eucalyptus Melliodora again next week for judging so I'm just about all out - everything is away! Mum normally 'stores' them for me on her walls and she's a bit blue about them all gone so she's pinned strips onto the completed panels of the Anzac Quilts and hung then instead.
The new bark quilt will be big, 60 x 180cm, and I haven't worked out which creepy crawlies to use yet, maybe another spider? If you have any good looking bugs in your garden I'm happy to take suggestions (and your photos!)
Here's a close up of the plan sketch (the little sketch is 10 x 30cm which gives you some idea of how big the sections will be.)
