Grapevine

Grapevine

12.5 inches wide x 18.5 inches long
32 cm x 47 cm

This little quilt features  a digitally embroidered grapevine design which I’ve extended by adding hand painted bunches of grapes and extra leaves. I worked the embroidery over a digitally quilted design and combined it with free motion machine quilting. The fruits and leaves I’ve added have been painted with acrylic fabric paints and finally I embellished the work with lots of hand stitched French knots. The cotton fabric base is a digital print of some flaking plaster Laura photographed on holiday in Portugal. I liked the idea of the vine scrambling over the ancient wall of the house!

Silver Trees

Silver Trees

39 inches wide x 39 inches long
100cm x 100cm

This quilt was made to satisfy a challenge for our Thr3fold exhibiting group. It was inspired by a fabulous sunset viewed one evening during the drive from the hills above Vancouver to downtown. The silver trees that gave the quilt its name were a beautiful feature of the garden of fellow Thr3fold member, Catherine Nicholls. Lit from below their white trunks shone theatrically through the dark night! I used marbled fabrics discovered at the Quilt Museum at La Conner together with my hand dyes. The piece has been free motion machine quilted and I’ve accentuated the effect of the feather motifs within the quilting by highlighting them with metallic, copper fabric paint. One edge of the quilt has been embellished with natural shell buttons secured with bright red thread to echo some of the colours of the marbled fabric.

£350 includes postage to the UK.

And In His Dreams He Heard The Surf Roar

And In His Dreams He Heard The Surf Roar

28.5 inches wide x 35.5 inches long
73cm x 90cm

This quilt was inspired by Hemingway’s Old Man and the Sea. (I always like to have a title before I can resolve the design of a quilt and this quote was perfect!) It features block printing of the traditional patchwork design, Storm at Sea, using acrylic paints. The blocks have been hand printed onto a digitally printed image I took of an ancient fishing boat I discovered languishing on a beach in Brittany, France. The colours of the many layers of peeling paint on the old wooden planks were inspirational and provided such a gorgeous background for the printing that followed. The text is an inkjet transfer onto painted fusible webbing, bonded to the surface of the fabric and then embellished with hand stitch. I have used both hand quilting and free motion machine quilting in this piece.

Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves

This appliquéd and embroidered panel was inspired by an ancient farm building I spotted on a walk near my home. The windows had long gone and the plants and trees were invading the space. The leaves were touched with the first signs of cold weather colour. I’ve worked with a wide range of fabrics including hand dyed cotton, fine silk and tulle. There is a combination of free motion machine quilting and lots of hand stitched detail and I’ve modified some of the layers with  a delicate touch of pale pastel.

The appliquéd and embroidered panel measures 13.5 inches x 13.5 inches
34cm x 34cm

It’s mounted onto a black box canvas panel which measures
15.75 inches x 15.75 inches x 1.5inches
40 cm x 40 cm x 4cm
