Challenge – Nature #3
In this third challenge of the year we all start on a new pair of subjects on the theme of nature. It is interesting how we will approach the change of subjects yet still remain within the overall theme. I know that it took me a while to decide which aspects to choose because once one starts to think about nature, the possibilities seem endless – from sky to sea and everything within and between. I hope that you will enjoy exploring the natural adventures we are making and continue to make. To view further details of each quilt, the makers’ techniques and thoughts, simply click on each of the small pictures below.
Challenge – Nature #2
Our second challenge of the year continues the nature theme, and will be the pair to the last challenge. This is a different way of working for us (as we often produce work in a series of six), so it should be interesting to see how each person decides to interpret each pair, and I am looking forward to the variation that this brings. We hope that you will also enjoy this wander through the natural world, and will take a closer look at the details and thought behind each quilt, by clicking on the small pictures below to take you to the dedicated page for that quilt.
Challenge – Nature #1
This year our challenges will be on the subject of nature, but as a change to the normal six piece series on the same theme, we have decided to work in three sets of pairs. This is such a wide subject so we think that by working in pairs each member will have the chance to explore three different aspects of nature. It should be very interesting to see which aspect is chosen and how it is handled as a pair. In this first quilt we invite you to view the details of each, and to see the thoughts of the artists, both on how the quilt is inspired but also you may get an insight into how the next piece will evolve. Enjoy our first dive into Nature
Challenge – Artist style #6
This is the last in our series of quilts created in the style of our chosen artist, and what an interesting and colourful journey it has been this year. It has been quite a challenge to produce original and interesting work and has involved stepping outside the comfort zone for many of us. It has resulted in a wonderful gallery of work that we hope will entertain and captivate you. Please enjoy a leisurely wander through the work in this latest challenge by clicking on the small pictures below.

Challenge – Artist style – #1
This year – 2022 – our challenge is to create six pieces created in the style of an artist of our own choosing. We will also leave the subject of each series to the members’ own choice. This will mean that each person will produce six distinct pieces. We hope that we will producing a virtual gallery of each artist and that you will enjoy browsing the ‘quilt paintings’ within it. As always, you can click on the thumbnail pictures below to take you to a more detailed view of the art and to see the thoughts and techniques behind each.
Challenge – Country – Flora/Fauna
This month our final challenge in the ‘Country’ series is based on Flora and Fauna of each country. I’m sure that many heads will be scratched as we all decide from that very wide spectrum, which aspect we will choose to work from. Whether the plants, animals, or both are chosen, the outcome is bound to represent a world view of the natural world. We hope that you will enjoy visiting the ‘show’ and as always you can see the details of each quilt, and the thoughts behind the designs by clicking on each of the thumbnail pictures below.
