Ari and her Van Gogh Block!

Well after me finishing this 12 inch block for the Quilt Studio challenge back in April, today I finally gave it to the friend I made it for! I've known Arianne for the last 12 years, we meet when we were both doing craft markets and fairs around Perth in the mid 90's. We shared a house for a year in 1999 or was it '98? Too far back to remember! She is an artist herself, in nearly every room of our house we have a peice of her work. A small mirror in the study here, a canvas each in the girls rooms, a huge A2 sized print of fish in our bedroom, a stunning painting in the lounge room of a girl that represents me, holding 12 red roses that Daz gave to me once, she painted that one for our engagement pressie. So although throughout the years she recieved a lot of ceramics from me, this is the first item I have sewn for her. She liked it! Now to shortly reveal where the next 12 inch block will turn up! Stay tuned....
