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.

3 Indian boys

I love making my Indian Ladies quilts but am enjoying the challenge of making quilts featuring the men and pushing me to practice painting faces, although with this quilt it is a back view.
I photographed 3 boys walking down the street in Mumbai. It seemed such a typical sight. They have a cricket bat and a tiffin tin.
The background is painted with added applique in the same style that I have made the other 5 quilts. I have one more to make in the same style.



  1. Love the background and a great choice of fabric for the shirts. You are so skilled at painting and appliquéing people. How many quilts are you making? From your comments above that makes seven?!

  2. Hi Elaine.I made the middle shirt fabric by just painting the stripes over a boring fabric. i will make 7, then I can reject one if I think the others are better! I could make dozens with all the fabulous photos I have.
