2011 SAQA Auction Quilt

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

This 12″ square textile, just completed but as yet untitled,  is my offering for this year’s SAQA Benefit Auction  At this link you can see some of the early submissions to this year’s auction list, and find full details of how you can particpate and acquire a fine small art quilt for your textile or quilt collection  (I suggest mine of course! )

The Auction will run online from September 12th to October 2nd.

This piece fits in with the Timetracks series, and yet I think I may have another title in mind, but am thinking it over.  No rush.

My Place Exhibition

Saturday, January 17th, 2009

An international exhibition, MY PLACE, was shown in South Africa last year; will be seen this year in Australia in march, and then in New Zealand. It comprises thirty 50cm square quilts from each country, 90 in all.

I previously blogged this on 16 june last year, but only showed the detail as the selection process for My Place exhibition was not complete. for further information about this exhibiton and its schedule, go to

It was new work for me at that time, but I have since gone on to make other works in this vein and subject matter. Compared with previous works, the techniques including slash and burn, lots of irregularity within structure and no binding or formal edging of any kind are ‘rough’ , but to work this free way has been exhilarating, and you will be able to see more when my new website goes live in a short couple of weeks or so.

From the body of work commenced with this piece, comes “Timetracks 7 ” which has been selected for Quilt National 09, and on the opening day for that exhibition, an image of it will appear on this blog and my website.
