Journey Quilt
  • Journey Quilt

    This quilt is hand printed with a repeat block print and hand stitched using a running stitch following a natural journey through the quilt. The edges are finished with a traditional blanket stitch in peach which stands out from the grey. There is a clear journey through the quilt which in it self is a message about moving forward and looking forward.  Hand painted copper foil binder and red and peach waste binders accentuate the sunrises and sunsets spotted across the piece. The reverse is a hunny cream showing off the curving grey/inky yarn stitches.

     

    I make everything in my home studio, in Leith Edinburgh. In every process I look at minimising waste and reusing materials, from binders to fabric. I take great pride in sourcing ethical fabrics from reclaimed, dead-stock or organic/Fairtrade sources and only use natural fabrics.
