It feels a bit odd starting a blog. I’m not sure that I have that much to say to the world, but I have been asked by friends and colleagues to start a blog to let people know what I am doing with my quilts. So here goes. I have finished my major piece on the Body Shop, and I will find a photo of it, although I only have dodgy snaps. I am now starting work on a quilt about Laura Ashley and making some portraits, which is a big new departure for me. I will put up pictures of those as I go along.
This is the final panel of my Body Shop quilt and it seemed faintly appropriate to start with it. It was made to fit the gap created by putting all the other panels together and I was amazed that it would lie flat. Assembling the quilt called for some ingenuity and it is enormous and very heavy so I have deliberately made it so that it will come to pieces. I might let the panels go separately, but at the moment I couldn’t bear to split it up.
