You will be seeing more unique pieces like this appearing in my Etsy shop. I have been a bit despondent recently about copying of my ideas ( this is the downside of teaching I guess) and decided to concentrate more on producing things that are more difficult to copy because of the preciousness of the materials. In the past I have not let these pieces go as I can't repeat them in any way but now is the time to..
This piece which is now on sale with ETSY was inspired by a bunch of purple tulips on my studio.

The snow has kept me in and forced me to work on a Power Point Presentation that I will present as a lecture at the Quilters Guild AGM in April. It is good to look back through photos to remind oneself of the journey you have travelled. This is a detail of the bottom of a quilt that is on a double page spread in my book .I love combining bits of different quilts and using colour. I just get bored when I try to use neutral palettes and red creeps frequently in to everything. Makes me want to go back to doing simple pieces which are all about colour and texture.
