Halifax Embroiders guild meeting February

We had another inspirational evening, this month looking at the work of Claire Tinsley. She took us on a journey in her discovery and love of quilting. It was like a magic show of colour as she revealed quilt after quilt. An explosion of colour and technique. She has been quilting for 40 years and has won many an award. Her quits are also a development on the traditional quilt as she also paints the surface.

This piece was my favorite. I loved the effect of the light shining through the water and reflecting on the fish below. For me, these pieces are beyond the title of a quilt. They are paintings in fabric and are stunning.
