Inspiring Friday

Some of CQG members showed their work that was exhibited in the latest QuiltWest. Pat Forster, Meg Cowey, Helen O’Hara, Sharon Brown, Ross Ellis and Jan Rowe gave us some insights into the work behind their art pieces

I am disappointed that I couldn’t make the Friday meeting and wish to thank Nat for providing me with words and photos.  Ross also showed the group some of his stunning embroidery pieces as well.  I am fairly sure there is nothing that this man can not do well.

Many of Ross’s pieces are patchwork/embroidery that are sewn on to clothing, and Nat asks the question, ….”fashion that inspires….what came first the fashion or the patchwork? Nat spent some time living in Vietnam and has some clothing in her wardrobe featuring many aspects of patchwork and embroidery, that she had made whilst living there.  If you “google” Chula” fashions, you will have an understanding of how Nat’s question came about.
