Music with a touch of RED has been selected by the Quilters' Guild of the British Isles to be shown in EQA exhibition at Festival of Quilts 2015 in Birmingham

Sub title: BLUES

The Quilters Guild asked their members for the 2015 Festival of Quilts, to make a 12" square with the theme "Music with a touch of Red".

As I like Blues music very much, I decided to use that as my inspiration.

I used a piece of blue hand dyed cotton for the background, the figure of the player was done with inkpen and pencils.

The guitar was appliqued on, with string in metal thread couched on by hand.

Machine quilted.
