Jane wins at Blackthorpe

Jane Rowland's piece made for the Quilters Guild Suffolk Suitcase collection was awarded first prize at the Blackthorpe Barn exhibition this weekend. The suitcase collection, also containing Suffolk inspired pieces by OOTF members Lynne Pretty and Janet Valentine, will be available for groups to share throughout the region.

The Ewes Have It Too by Jane Rowland
Jane says:

The sheep represent a link between my childhood on a mixed farm in Kenya, and Suffolk where I now live.  Suffolk used to have an important wool trade and in recent years I have learned to spin at a local Guild.

Recycled ice-dyed calico and African wax print fabrics.  Screen printing, machine applique, hand stitching and quilting.
