Each year The Contemporary Quilt Group of the UK sets a journal quilt challenge.
One small piece each month. The 'rules' change slightly each year. It's an opportunity for experimentation. The additional challenge at the end of 2021 was to join the 12 pieces together.
Painted linens, dyed mixed fabrics, painted silks, velvet and upholstery fabric. Joined together in a kimono shape, layered, machine and hand stitched with quilting and appliqué. Approx. 120 x 120 cms.
The theme of the piece is regeneration and Renewal. The name of the piece is 'Fragility pushes through'.
