Carolyn Konig was also featured at the IQF at Houston this year and here are her beautiful quilts. All three Australians, Di Ford Hall, Michelle Yeo and Carolyn Konig have had books published by Quiltmania and were invited to display their quilts in Houston as well as give a lecture about quilting in Australia. They gave brief background information about quilting from our English heritage and how waggas were used in necessity during the depression. They also explained that they drafted their quilt designs, based on antique quilts, and using just a pencil, ruler and eraser.
Their lecture was very well received and over much too quickly.
Well done ladies! It was lovely to see them being recognized on an international stage.
Hugs, Jan Mac
