The Yard while we caught up , then after a visit to Creek Creative, we headed back to the house to see what progress we'd made. Lots of good advice and suggestions about design walls and shelving in my studio and bit of tweaking of some fabrics marinating on cork boards got me thinking again about entry for CQ latest exhibition 'On the Edge'.
Seeing what Margaret Cooter has been up to plus discussions online on the CQ Yahoo group ( with an extension to the deadline!) has opened up the possibility that I might actually have a go.
I'm using the sections of 2 very tatty old red and white quilts that I over-dyed with indigo ( and re-appraised after I'd been to the Simon Calley exhibition ) and I think I've solved how I can show both sides and showcase the lovely raggy edges. It shares some characteristics with the 'Cwilt Cymru ' Red Fragments piece I made a couple of years ago ( below) but without the paint! I've put together a sample JQ ( top) to work out how to stitch it .
