I love a bit of glitter, jewellery and so on, and when I quilt with metallic thread, gold especially, to me it expresses something about value or preciousness.

“Dreamtracks”, shown here, is my piece currently showing in the Kimberley Dreaming Exhibition at the WA Craft Fair, on in Perth at the moment.   The machine quilting is in gold using twin needles.  Inspired by the world famous Bungle Bungles, it is 30cm square.  It’s touched off the series that has been occupying me the past few months since I made it for the exhibition, and I’m currently working on  #7 with another idea in mind for after that.

If you have time this weekend, wander down to visit the fair and say hello to “Dreamtracks” in amongst what look like a totally marvellous collection of Kimberley Dreaming pieces.

    Nice work, Alison. You obviously had patience, skill, and some luck to use twin needle AND gold metallic thread. I’m glad it came out so beautifully.
