s and b official opening today

It was great to see a large gathering of quilt/textile people at Zig Zag Gallery this afternoon, including almost all ‘stitched and bound 2017’ exhibitors. ‘Quilts’ from the rafters, ‘quilts’ on the walls, and ‘quilts’ on plinths–all in  the name of the game we call art quilts. Thank you to everyone who came and helped make a joyful occasion. Photos will follow if the committee are sent some!!

Promotion photo chosen

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!
