6th European Quilt Triennial

I have just received a copy of the catalogue of this exhibition currently showing at Textilsammlung Max Berk, Kurpf√§lzisches Museum, Heidelberg, Germany in which my quilt ‘High Summer’ is included. This exhibition will be shown at the Festival of Quilts next year (11-14 August) at the NEC, Birmingham and as with all the previous Triennial’s there is much exciting and innovative work.

I have become fascinated with photographing and drawing garden flowers and looking at them in close detail. Below is a colour study for the quilt. I find it very helpful to play around with the colour before I actually start the work, as you can see I have not nescessarily followed the colour scheme of the painting but its very helpful to have when making fabric choices.

The exhibition runs from the 11th September until the 31st October 2015. Sadly the museum is closing but I feel I have been very fortunate to have exhibited my work there on several occasions including in the opening exhibition ‘Quilts in Time’ curated by Helen Joseph
