This week I have been doing a lot of preparing, and some local teaching.
I have a vague plan for a new book showing how to make the townscape quilts that i have made so am trying to make some more townscape quilts based on the photos I have taken in Porto, Uzbekistan and South Africa
I have an exhibition at Cowslip Studio in August next year with Sheena Norquay and Hilary Gooding showing some of our South Africa quilts so I decided to make another quilt similar to my “On the Edge” Quilt, but this time use only Schweschwe fabric. I plan to stitch it whilst i will be at UWE in Bristol next weekend.
