Another quilt for the rest home planned in collaboration with Yvonne. She drew me a fantastic cow and I filled it in with fabric and thread. We’ve put it on top of an old, tired itijeme quilt that had passed it’s best … quilt recycling! I was inspired by a master of collage and thread painting, Sophie Standing, take a look at her stuff on line, it’s amazing.

With a special little one on its way, it was time to have a go at a pop art quilt. I really like the clean silhouettes of children’s book illustrations from the 50’s so that was what I looked for when I gathered up the animal shapes. The fabrics are a mix of batik and prints and give a vintage vibe while still being fresh. I had fun making it, looking forward to the little grandie’s arrival now!
