The work of a group of textile artists drawn from around the world who vary in both their experience and in the nature of expression of their art. Their work broadly encompasses the understanding of a quilt in its loosest form.
2013 Moving forward
The intention of the theme in 2012 was to allow individuals to develop their work freely from whatever point they were currently at –without constraint but with a light touch framework to work within. It was hoped (and it proved to be the case!) that the theme helped us communicate with each other something about ourselves through our work and our intentions.
Moving forward into 2013 from this starting point we are choosing to work individually over the year on a series of work of our own choosing whether that series be related to a specific theme or process or design approach.
As in 2012 every two months a piece of work will be produced, starting January 2013. Size of the work for 2013 will be A3 (30x42 cm approx or 12x17inches) either portrait or landscape.

Late Autumn flurry
Whilst out and about in London having a break from meetings - I went for a walk in Green Park on a brooding dark November day - the sky was a heavy steel blue and the wind got up in gusts sending the leaf debris in spirals then falling down to earth almost confetti like. The colours of the maple leaves as they swirled around was spectacular against the sky. So having run out of time - used these remembered images as a source for the final piece of 2012.
The back ground is hand dyed pima cotton which was machine quilted - the leaf debris is hand dyed silks of different weights which I have raw edge appliqued in place. A very quick piece to meet the deadline but needs must!
