Month: August 2019

The Countdown is Underway

Just a week to go until H.Art starts but if you fancy a sneak peek we are opening on Friday 6th as well.

Sacred Spaces

Earlier this year I mentioned that I was  considering how best to approach some exhibition work to be based on Coventry Cathedral. Well despite other  things demanding my attention I am pleased to say that my quilts are all now complete and ready to show at ‘Sacred Spaces’ – an exhibition of work by members of ‘Stitch in the Middle’ (part of The Quilters’ Guild Contemporary Quilt Specialist Group).  I will have three pieces on show – my main quilt and two small A4 sized quilts, one as part of a Group Whisper Challenge and the second developing from a group meeting.  I will talk more about my main quilt in due course but for now here is one of the small pieces:

Old & New

‘Old and New’ combines imagery from both Cathedrals – the ‘figures’ are derived from the shapes of the window voids in the ‘Old’ Cathedral whilst the ‘Crown of Thorns’ and coloured blocks are inspired by the ‘New Cathedral’.

‘Sacred Spaces’ will showing from 21st to 27th October 2019

at Weavers Gallery, Church Lane, Ledbury, HR8 1DW (10.00am – 4.30pm)

with other venues to be announced in due course.
