Festival of Quilts 2018

The theme of the Quilter's Guild Challenge at The Festival of Quilts 2018 was 'Stitched through Time'

This is my piece made for the competition entitled 'The Colourwheel of Time' inspired by the idea that colour is woven through the cloth we use and the work we make.
Colour Wheel of Time 2018
 Made from recycled calico. Stitched, painted, stiffened, dyed and discharged. Hand dyed cotton fabrics 'woven' through stitched and cut buttonholes.

I am continuing to develop the ideas of adding more colour to my work and plan more pieces using this technique.
