Leaving My Name, complementary piece: S0 - What's it to You?

A piece worked on in combination with the same starting point by 3 more members of the Art Group By Design

Each person in the group has started with two pieces from the same design source.

This piece has been completed by the original artist, with the second piece "So - What's it to You? " being worked on by 3 other colleagues from the group.

From the quilts themselves we can see the progression of ideas as each artist adds their own interpretation of the theme.

The result is an exciting exhibition of thought provoking quilts, which explore the theme within a broad spectrum.

I had taken the style of the letters from a Dutch artist called Serch, and created the letters of my own name. I bonded these on to grey hand-dyed fabric. Both pieces were quilted in a brick pattern

A piece made for the Art Group: By Design showing in the exhibition Birmingham NEC ICHF March 2014 and Expo Veldhoven 2 - 4 May 2014
