Moving On - Strip Patchwork

Lynne has taken the idea of traditional Strip patchwork but interpreted it in a really creative way as part of her series of Japanese inspired quilts. This tiny piece does not do justice to this stunning work so please come along to the exhibition to see the whole thing - it's fabulous!

Moving On - Log Cabin

Marion is known as an embroiderer, weaver and knitter so the 'Moving On' challenge of taking a traditional quilt block and reinterpreting it in the creative style of the maker has truly taken her out of every comfort zone. Marion has embraced the familiarity of the Log Cabin Block but with her own printed fabrics and clever use of tonal variation this will be a really original piece of work.
