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.

The thread-painted butterfly is an experiment with "corner art". The idea is to mount only the butterfly and not the quilted background piece. The thread painting was done on water soluble stabilizer and the wings have wire couched on the back to give shaped. The piece is far more successful as shown, it looks rather wimpy mounted in the corner on its own. However, I think 'corner art' has potential and I hope to pursue the idea in the future.
