just a moment with Linda Steele

Welcome to the first installment of just a moment!  Today features a glimpse of Life on the Reef by Melbourne-based artist Linda Steele. Linda is an award-winning quilter and is especially well-known for her richly embellished crazy quilts. Hand embroidery and ribbon work also often feature in her textile art. Life on the Reef was made in just 3 weeks, a far cry from the Great Barrier Reef that evolved over perhaps as much as twenty million years!  Linda shares insights into her process and a full image of her artwork in her blog posts about Making Life on the Reef.
