flora fibre and fabric

I spent a very enjoyable morning wandering around the Northern Ireland Patchwork Guild's exhibition at the Island Arts Centre, Lisburn. It is the Hands Across the Border joint exhibition with the Irish Patchwork Society and the title is "Flora, Fibre and Fabric."
There were some amazing pieces.
Here's one by Anne James "Cream of the Crop". A beautiful calico quilt with a collection of patchwork flowers. My photo of one of the flowers does not do the quilt justice.


The colours in this "Floral Fantasy" quilt  by Maureen Burns just zinged. This photo of a small part of the quilt shows appliqued violas.

I marvelled at the flickering images in Irene MacWilliam's quilt, entitled "Wonder of Nature." I could not work out how she had come up with the end result.

The exhibition is on until the 19th October so still a few days to go.
Bye for now, Ali.
