Exhibition flier

This is the second exhibition that Contemporary Quilt London have held and the title Close to Home has been chosen to reflect the on the fact that the last two years have been an unprecedented time for all of us. As the pandemic eases and life has slowly started to resume its usual pace members have been reflecting on their own experiences. The pieces produced for this exhibition are their individual responses and reflections on this time when we were all required to stay at home.

A second body of work on display is Crossing the Line. This challenge asked members to use three specific colours and a prescribed size to produce a piece with a distinct diagonal line through it.
Members have used surface techniques such as printing and dyeing and textile techniques including piecing, applique and surface stitching and quilting either by hand or machine.

As the exhibition demonstrate each artist has their own individual style but all members share a common passion for textiles.
