the Tipsy Stitcher

This is a brand new piece - the binding stitched on last night only hours before it was due to be exhibited as usual - made for the Out Of The Fold exhibition at:
Workwise Cavern 4, 
Whiting Street
Bury St Edmunds
from Sat 24th October until Sat 31st October (closed Sunday and Monday) 10am until 4pm

This was a 'Moving On' challenge to take a traditional block - in this case the Drunkards path block - and move it on and make a piece in our own style.  

The Tipsy Stitcher 2015 - black linen wholecloth, discharged and bleached. Machine stitched.
