I keep returning to these images of my beloved grandparents for my artwork. This little quiltlet is printed on scraps of cloth which I dyed using various natural dyes and stitched onto a blanket. You can probably tell from the close-up that I'm more of an embroiderer than a quiltmaker. I like the tatty, worn look of the textiles although, thinking about it, my grandmother would probably have hated that. She liked things to be neat as a pin! (to use a textile metaphor).
More from Arbury Carnival:
Thanks to Karen from Kettles Yard for raising funds and being such a great hands on organiser. And to my 2 co-artists - Sandra and Cary. And to all the kids and parents who took part in the making and wearing and general blowing of bubbles!
