2012 new projects

Céad Míle Faílte
quilted hand for The International Quilt Festival Of Ireland
The exhibit will become an annual exhibit that will welcome quilters from all over the world. It will increase in size every year. The original idea and concept was that 1000 quilters from Ireland would participate. After many requests from else where now everyone can participate.

All entries must be made of fabric and have been sewn by hand or machine. All entries must have the artists name, where you are from and a short welcome message and the date you created the block written or sewn onto the front of the block. Entries are also encouraged to be embellished with as much appliqué work as you like. All entries that are submitted become property of the IQFOI and will not be returned. Highlighted entries will be shown in our festival program, online and in print.

The blocks for this exhibit must be 10 inches square. These blocks can be made of any combination of green and white fabric with your hand traced in one color or the other on a contrasting green or white background. Blocks should be quilted with just the wadding behind, no backing, and no binding.

For any questions, regarding rules or submission, please contact Suz at Every entry will be included in this exhibit, and all entries must be received at one of our IQFOI offices by March 1, 2012.

pour un événement collaboratif, convivial et évolutif.
 Cette année, le festival s’étoffe.

La Pecora Cornigliese

This is the wrap I made for La Pecora Cornigliese

This is a project due to the necessity to save a rare sheep breed native to the Appenini mountains, which was crossed in 1750 with the Merino breed. Therefore it produces wool with great quality.
The organisers of this project sent wool free of charge all over the world.
Everyone of the receivers will produce an object using any kind of technique, the wool can be dyed and mixed with different materials.
In March 2012 there will be a big show of all the works in Italy.
You can find more information of  Pecora Cornigliese on Facebook and on
