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 decided to do a portrait of Charles Sheeler himself, since I found his image to be very compelling and more inspiring to me than his artwork itself. The background (overlapping layers of coloured tulle) recalls the palette and shapes of his artwork, especially (Amoskeag Canal). This is the photo that I used for his portrait.
