Birmingham day 3.

Another great day, I'm really thrilled with the projects my students are working on. I'll share some tomorrow.

Everyone is wonderfully accomodating regarding photos here….with the exception of one lady. I was fliming the aisle…. she ran out of the booth and said she demanded I delete the film. I said I wasn't filming her booth, just general scenes… I menioned I was filming for the 'Quilt Show' and was going to whip out a card.

She made quite a rude comment… so her booth wasn't worth the efford…. sorry honey.

Lets look at some quilts..

Seed to Seed, Angela Mary Ball, Coventry.

This piece is a combination of machine and hand embroidery with repeating layered motifs.


'My Way' Solvie L. Krokeide. Norway.


Stephanie Redfern, Birmingham. 'The stone bird'

This project is wonderful, I saw her work last time I was here and was amazed. This is a book inspired by fossils and developed into a personal response to birds and our relationship to them.

I thought the texture in this quilt was interesting, at first I thought it was a texture magic project, but C June Barnes of Hastings says that it's a whole cloth on viscose, wool felt-shrunk for distortion and dimension.



I thought you might like to see this garment, it didn't have a a name on it but I think it was in the fashion show.


That's about all I can stay awake to do tonight… I willhave more time in the next day or so and I have a small video.

    Seed to Seed is very interesting. I love the subtle softening of the starkness of black and white.

    Hey Pammy I see that Stephanie Redfern loves your Rhino. (I still have my Rhino card in fact it is framed.)

  4. Ammonoidia – glad you liked it – Wool viscose felt is a much cheaper alternative to texture magic – just make sure that the product you buy has not been been treated to prevent shrinking – usually the whiter, thicker product! How this texture and dimension was achieved can be found in “Stitching to Dye in Qult Art”. The srface was embellished with Markal stick after dyeing.

    Glad you liked the Rhino
