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 absolutely delighted to discover Wilhelmina Barnes-Graham's work and to read about her life. There were so many of her paintings that I found inspiring but the one that captured my heart was this one, Pink and Flame, gouache on paper, from 1958.
Mine is also inspired by the dazzling colours of the fuschia flowers that are in bloom now. After an extremely long winter, colour is what I need right now!
