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.

Made it!

I aimed to finish quilt nr. 6 before midnight tonight and am very happy to present to you :
"Aniseed". I was on a creative roll the last few days, mostly triggered by the course I am doing at an art academy in Kalmthout. I had some catching up to do with the drawing assignments because I had missed a few lessons while traveling. As you all know, one thing leads to another, and having decided on "seeds and pods" as my theme for 2013, I got started on Aniseed as my final quilt for this year.

I do apologise for the quality of the photo's, but it is very dark and gloomy here. I painted the seeds on cotton with fabric paint. Then I selected some fabrics for the background : a monoprinted piece, the 2 light pieces which were done ages ago using flour resist and fabric paint and the orange piece was hand dyed and printed.


  1. The background fabrics go so well together and the painted flowers have a lot of depth. The quilting that I can see looks good too. Where is Kalmthout?? Happy 2013 Laura from Elaine.

  2. Well done Laura - in hte nick of time! Beautiful - I feel as though I could reach out and pick up the seed!
