Voyage – A group of textiles artists drawn together 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. We exist as a virtual group on the internet, posting our work on the blog and communicating via a group site to enable us to share our work and exhibit.
We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

At last with Jean holding my hand I've got myself signed up and am ready to show off my first piece.
Made here in the Glenthorne where Jean, Gillian and I first started brewing this idea...
Where I am? Well, I had to use a Wax Print to say where I am - A favourite of mine for years! Simply featuring a beautiful printed leaf and flower design - doing my best to highlight the pattern with machine quilting - and a bit of where I'm going with the addition of some hand stitching. It seems that these days a little bit of hand work is starting to creep into my pieces!
Detail of leaf - look carefully for the French knots!
Well - this is my first ever posting on a blog - so feel free to congratulate me!
