An image of Hilary Arber’s stitched and bound entry, “Beach Drift’, has been chosen for the exhibition invitation, flyer and catalogue. The quilt features:
Hand dyed fabric, muslin, silk cocoon waste, commercial braid fused and stitched onto cotton wadding. Machine bobbin work, hand embroidery, couching, machine quilting.
The inspiration was:
Tides come and go, leaving touches of colour, telling an ocean’s adventure stories amongst washed weed and waste.
You will have to wait for the exhibition in order to see the full quilt!
