The group blog of twelve quiltmakers and textile artists scattered around the world in 7 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 have signed up for a masterclass with Elizabeth Barton and the February assignment was to explore movement. I discovered that this is not easy to do if you exclude people and things actually moving. I started with skiers going down a hill in my drawings and decided to eliminate the people and with a suggestion from EB as I wanted to be more abstract, the yellow sky was tried out - and seemed to go beautifully with my indigo dyed fabric. This piece became a sample for my quilting. I can't say I'm totally pleased with it, but the big piece looks better for having experimented so I have posted that too.
