Inserting and joining piping in a seam
War Quilts - 5

Some inspiration from the Stitches and Craft Show

I was trying to rationalize the photos on my phone and came across a group that I had taken at the show.  (I had a concussion at the time and don't even know how I got to or from the place.)  There were a number of displays and I know that this one took my fancy.   It was a group of small quilts by Maxine Fry.

Some of her work reminds me of Gwen Marsden and it was these pieces that I liked best.  In the exhibition the 'process' of her work was on display.  From the torn paper mock ups.

What a great way to refine a design.

There are so many ways to develop a design, aren't there!

There are and I have used this kind of process before back when I was at Uni. I just forgot about it.
