February 2017 meeting - Hazel Foot

Hazel Foot was our guest speaker at our February meeting.  She spoke about how her international travels have inspired her to make quilts.

Hazel made this quilt after a trip to India. The trellis pattern down the centre is based on patterns she saw in India.





However, Hazel usually prefers black as a background, and wasn't totally happy with this quilt, so made another version with a black background. Here they are side by side.


And some close ups of the black version.




Hazel lived in Papua New Guinea for some years and made this quilt in the style of tapa cloth.
 




Another beautiful quilt Hazel showed included these gorgeous strong colours and very detailed quilting. 



Hazel also ran a class on Sunday for our guild members.
