Neon Bounce - Bloggers Quilt Festival













This is my most recent finish - Neon Bounce.
I finished it just in time to come on a recent day trip to Circular Quay in Sydney. 

First stop was the Sydney Opera House. 


This graceful, iconic building is celebrating it's 40th birthday this week.
Happy Birthday Opera House!!


From a distance the sail-like building gleams a bright white 

 but close it looks as though it's made of patchwork.



We continued on our way and met a snail who fancied using my quilt as a scarf.

On a ferry about to go under the Sydney Harbour Bridge...

Happy Clowns , open mouthed in amazement

Hard to belive anything is brighter than those neon fabrics but this radiant sun was shining brightly. 

But this is my favourite photo of all. Fancy bumping into someone tall enough to hold an 80 inch quilt so effortlessly. 

After having a fun day out seeing the sights Neon Bounce looks right at home in the place it was made for - the end of my hallway.

  12. Fantastic! The photos really show off the colors and design elements perfectly. But I think my favorite one is the one of your hallway. There's nothing quite like the feeling of having handmade, well loved quilts hanging around your space.

  13. Oh what fun! Your circles with straight lines create a work of modern art. Very original and fun to look at. I want to study each round composition. Love your pieced light gray background and your black stitching too. That is some great hall way!
