Talisman 2

Talisman 2

25.5 inches x 28 inches
65 cm x 71 cm

This is the second in a series of Talisman quilts I made a few years ago. It was exhibited at Festival of Quilts at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham and has been in storage ever since – seems a pity to be hidden away! I wanted to evoke a  sense of a primitive protective spirit. The fabrics are discharged linen and cotton with silk details. The text was created using painted fusible webbing. The quilt features lots of both hand and machine stitching. The three little beaded and embellished pockets are devised to hold precious secrets!

Butterfly

Butterfly

26.5 inches x 18 inches
67.5 cm x 46 cm

This is a digital print of one of my sketchbook pages, superimposed with an enhanced photograph of a swallowtail butterfly. It was printed using fibre reactive dyes and the wings of the butterfly have been embellished with fabric painting. The piece is closely quilted with free motion machine quilting and there is beaded detail to one of the bound corners. It has a hidden sleeve ready for hanging on a rod or batten.
