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!
I’m showing my work in this delightful small gallery, in Henfield which is a large village in Sussex during the whole of February. Looking forward to stewarding in the gallery and meeting people who come in.
Just sold the green floral bag above, to someone in Austria. I am always delighted to sell one of my things, but miss them also! I am told it is going to be someone’s Christmas present, so I wish them joy and happy use of it. Hope it doesn’t just go into a drawer of unwanted presents…..
