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 had never heard of Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, so I was delighted to discover her great talent. I will continue to study her work.
I chose her painting ‘Swarm’ from 1963 as my inspiration.
For Little Swarm I chose a light grey fabric for the background and bonded the squares with ®Mistyfuse, a few at a time, and quilted as I went along. The squares are all ®Colour Catchers, the red ones painted with acrylic paint. I loved using this method and I see a series coming...............
And now for a big apology to the group:
So embarrassing, I had it in my head that the reveal day was end of June and thought I had plenty of time. So when Hilary contacted me, to hear if anything was wrong, I meant to do my piece as quickly as possible, but as you can see, it didn't happen, sorry everyone.
I just love being a member of this group and hope I will be forgiven.
