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.

A Falling of Leaves

A Falling of Leaves

For the last of my four quilts for 2015 based on the seasons, it is the turn of Autumn. The background strips reflect the changing colours of the leaves on the trees around us , which have been amazing this year. I picked up leaves from our garden and used their shapes for the appliqu├ęd leaves. The contrast horizontal strips of bright blue are to represent the occasional glimpses of sunny sky that we have seen, if only rarely.
Background free motion quilting in three different designs and three different threads flow across the piece.
The four quilts from this year are now complete and make an interesting and colourful series, which I have enjoyed making.
