Interpretations 23, San Diego

Good news to hand is that one of my entries, “Caribbean Crush” is among the 37 art quilts selected for this year’s “Interpretations 23” exhibition at the Visions Museum of Textile Art, San Diego.  It opens October 14th and runs through December 30th.

It is a technique I wrote of developing last year, inspired by one of the workshops I took with Stitch Club; and in that link you can read about the first small piece I made with it, for the SAQA 2022 benefit auction. So I won’t go into the full technical details again – but in summary I hand hand stitched hundreds of small scrap pieces of cotton fabric onto a base fabric, then edged it and did a bit of quilting to hold the layers together – which ended up an area of 97cm x 98cm .
