With the first of three exhibitions with the Contemporary Quilters West fast approaching all the pictures are now complete and at the framers!
Following on from the earlier blog about the creation and inspiration of this Starling piece I finally have the finished image.
‘Chorus Line’ Starling
This piece included lots of small painted details and hand stitching. I really enjoyed the hand stitching, though it was a struggle to get the needle through some of the very heavily machine stitched areas – great to try some new techniques though.
You can see this piece plus three others at Harbour House Gallery in Kingsbridge, Devon, TQ7 1JD between the 27th of April and the 3rd of May 2018.
For the past 3 years I have been a member of the Contemporary Quilters West.
We are a group of contemporary and art quilters based in the South West and Wales. The group is affiliated to the the British Quilters’ Guild and many of us are members of the internet based Contemporary Quilt Group. We meet six times a year in Saltford, between Bath and Bristol, to discuss ways of increasing our professionalism and promoting our work.
Every two years we hold a major exhibition which presents work from our members under the ongoing title ‘Unfolding Stories’.
Each artist presents a small collection of new work, capturing a point in time in their own creative story. The exhibition is the unfolding story of their work.
You can read more about the artists here.
