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 tried a slightly different approach with this artist. Instead of picking a particular picture as an inspiration I looked at several of his pieces, then went away and thought about what impression they had made on me. I then tried to design my piece without going back to look at his work again!
I'm sorry it is not a very good photograph, but I was extremely pressed for time. I want to add more detail and complexity to the image at some point, though I'm not quite sure how to do that yet. My intention had been to have the kiwi image barely discernable in the middle of a jumble of lines and colours, but the fabrics I choose for the various areas have made him stand out rather too well. Perhaps that is the way forward, to add some stronger colours in other areas of the piece. What do you all think?
