Staffordshire Ware

Here are some new appliqu├ęs I have been working on. They are based on my daughter's drawings of china figurines. I have loved doing these.

Colour

The snow has kept me in and forced me to work on a Power Point Presentation that I will present as a lecture at the Quilters Guild AGM in April. It is good to look back through photos to remind oneself of the journey you have travelled. This is a detail of the bottom of a quilt that is on a double page spread in my book .I love combining bits of different quilts and using colour. I just get bored when I try to use neutral palettes and red creeps frequently in to everything. Makes me want to go back to doing simple pieces which are all about colour and texture.
