Quilts


I've been making quilts for more years than I care to remember. There's no way I can show them all so I shall choose just a few and change them from time to time.



The Messenger
This quilt was inspired by the crows, rooks and jackdaws that live all around my house. It was made for our SiX and Friends exhibition, 'Orientation' which toured in 2012/2013.



The Messenger was digitally printed from my original gouache and Indian ink painting. 


Broken
This quilt was inspired by an ancient, decrepit greenhouse with its rusty metal and broken glass. It combines hand dyed fabrics with digitally printed photographs. It is free motion quilted and features hand painted details.


Here's a detail of the fabric painting worked to represent the shards of broken glass.


Blue Moon Rising
Was inspired by my local landscape in winter. The trees and moon were discharged from black linen and the foreground simply pieced.


The Fifth Day
This is the first painted quilt I ever made. It's wholecloth with appliqued details.


Confidante
Wholecloth, hand painted, free motion quilted.



And a detail of the painting.

Chronicle
Curved seam piecing, stencilling, free motion quilting and paint with shell button embellishments


And a detail of the free motion quilting with metallic painting.









And a detail of the red sun.



Safe Haven


And a detail of one of the birds in the window.


Remembering
This metre square quilt is a digital print on cotton poplin fabric. It was made from several of my pencil drawings in combination with photographic images of moths. 





And a detail.
