A group of internet artists from all over the place who have decided to give each other a challenge every few weeks, on a theme chosen by each in turn. We have different ideas and styles, but share a love of textiles, and want to have some fun.

Change of Plan

Forget the pewter pots, I'm inspired by something larger!! In 2007 we had an exhibition of Henry Moore sculptures at Kew Gardens (where I work) which influenced many of my Journal Quilts that year. Yesterday I found a couple of tops I'd printed with Photoshop manipulations using Poster Printing onto indigo. No time to completely handstitch as I did the one above but  maybe a combination of machine and hand quilting?
