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.

For many years I have had the fabric and the botanical drawings to make a quilt based on the 'Juglans Regia' or the Walnut Tree but I was well and truely 'blocked'! A friend suggested I enlarge the drawings, which I did and I was inspired. Not wanting to use the materials I had saved I looked into my stash of black, white and red fabrics. I hand appliqued using freezer paper and quilted by hand and by machine. I embellished the piece with glass and metal beads. This is the result, Voyage No.5.
