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 the pond

Here is my second quilt with the theme trees. This time blossom trees next to a pond - hoping that spring will come at last :-). At the moment I am taking an online class with Katie PM and decided to use the first assignment for this group as well. Because it is a class piece there were requirements which otherwise I would not have used. For instance on top of the 6 colors of the background all colors of the 3 (12 step) color wheels had to be used. More colors than I would normally have used. All colors are hand dyed. To attach the snippets of fabric which are the blossoms I attached each one with a seed bead. The other option would have been to cover them with tulle and stitch through that, but that would have had an effect on the color.


  1. I like this a lot, the extra colours really zing!

  2. LOVE the colours! It is so cheery; it makes me smile when i look at it :)

  3. A really nice piece - the colours are great.

  4. The colours all go well together and it looks a happy piece.Online courses are great for those of us isolated from great teachers. I have done several.
