The group blog of twelve quiltmakers and textile artists scattered around the world in 8 countries and across four continents. Our aim is to create a small quilt every three months.
The theme is chosen by the members in turn.

I must admit that I had these fabrics all laid out for this particular piece before Michele announced golden yellow as our next challenge colour. Here in Montreal we are particularly desperate for a "hit" of sunshine, as winter refuses to end.
No, it's not my challenge entry, but I thought you might enjoying seeing this analogous colour scheme in action.
A number of years ago Hilary treated me to a morning (in fact two) with her friend Tig and we did some break-down screen printing which was a great success. I used a small piece of the fabric as my background in the Aubergine challenge. Here is a pic of another piece from the same length of fabric where the screen is now really breaking down.
Perfect colour for the next challenge. Will I use it or not? Time will tell!
These are some additions to my series of collographs on mulberry paper. They are calledCrossing, Safe Harbour, Wanderlust, and Celebrations. I love the variation of line that comes from rubbing graphite over the collograph plate that is made of drawing into sand gel with a flattened stick. They are mounted onto gallery canvas 16X16 square and 18X24.
