Today’s preview of the Australia Wide Six exhibition is And the Wheels go Round #2 by Sue Reid of Kyabram, Victoria. Sue has always loved colour and design and painted abstracts in oils in her early years. Sue is a mathematics teacher by profession, and this is reflected in her penchant for pattern.
In 1998 Sue left teaching and enrolled in a patchwork course and made her first quilt. She discovered that it was the quilting she enjoyed and not the piecing, quilting was when the quilt came alive.Colour, shape and stitch are her inspiration. She is driven by colour especially oranges of all shades, and her quilts reflect this.
