Sutton Hoo for QG


The Quilters Guild AGM will be held in the Suffolk and Essex region in April 2021. The theme of the event will be 'Hidden Treasures of East Anglia' and I was honoured to be asked by the organisers to design and make a small piece inspired by the Sutton Hoo mask which will be reproduced on a coaster and given to all attending delegates.

This is a small 12" square piece. Markal stick on a black fabric base with free motion stitch and cable stitch for added texture.
