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.

Without windmills half of the Netherlands would be covered with sea. The area where I live is around 13 feet below sea level. Windmills were used to create polders, but also to grind wheat and nowadays they are instrumental for creating energy. In honour of the different types of windmills I made this quiltlet. The background is made from split nine patch blocks. Different windmills are printed on Lutrador and the modern windmill is made from felt.
And this could have been my second quilt for this group, only I just realised that I made it in the wrong size 12"x20" instead of 10"x20". Shoot!!
