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 was inspired by the colours of Architecture (1923) and used them to create my own piece. The temptation with many of Klee's works, I found, was to reproduce them exactly as quilts. I tried to stay away from that. Kleeful is a textile collage on a felt background, covered with tulle and then heavily machine quilted. I ice-dyed many of the fabrics on vintage tablecloth and these fabrics came out amazing. Here are a few samples.
