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.

Ildiko's No.1 piece

Here I am at last, and will upload pictures of three quilts at the same time.

My chosen topic for abstracted nature is stones and rocks and similar natural formations. This piece was inspired by a trip to Normandy where you can see granite strata all around. The colours of the quilt are not 'true': instead of grays I chose a much warmer colour scheme. After a bit of strip piecing I inserted a brown wedge, and added a brown strip on the left. The pieces glued on the left are heavy-duty Vilene pieces with a layer of tissue paper and painted with acrylics.

  1. Really like the warm colours you have chosen, Ildiko and the added Vilene pieces add a good contrast to the piece. Welcome to the group! Elaine.
