“Tiger, Tiger”

This is my latest quilt, a long thin one, which I have called “Tiger, Tiger”, as its inspiration was the poem by William Blake called that, which I saw recently at the Tate Gallery. It could be used as a table runner, a foot of the bed throw, or hung as a wall hanging in, say, a passage. I have made four matching tablemats too.

This was the first time I have used curved peicing throughout a quilt, and I wanted to celebrate this small triumph with a old friend of mine, also a quilter. But sadly she died of Coronavirus a few weeks ago. Same age as me and in apparent good health, so this was shocking news. I miss her. So now every time I see this quilt, I think of her, and the quilting knowhow we shared, and it now has a quite different meaning for me than it was meant to have when I started it in January!
