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.

In my stash I had a piece of tie dyed indigo Alison had given me. It had many small circular shapes in its pattern. I raw edge appliqued brightly coloured African fabrics on to these shapes. I quilted radiating lines out from the centre to the circles. I then painted the radiating shapes in silver. The circles and back ground were quilted using holographic thread. The overall design reminded me of a virus.
