Variations on a theme

Where has the time gone? I've intended to post something on here for weeks, but time flies, as they say. Anyway, back in May I posted a picture of 'Queen of Spades' - a little quilt I wished to enter in the Festival of Quilts. I should have read the form more closely, because it was slightly too small - rules say that a quilt should be 1 metre in one direction. So I added some shapes top and bottom to bring it up to the correct size, and I'm glad I did - it looks more complete now.


As you may know, I am studying for the Quilters Guild Judging qualification, and as part of this module, we have to look at various quilts and the techniques used to make them. I was delighted to learn that one of the other students, Hilde van Schaardenburg, has used 'Queen of Spades' as an example, and has made her own piece inspired by it. Here it is...
I think Hilde's version is beautiful! If you want to see more of her work, do have a look at her website -
