The Sage, Gateshead Quays

Well I finally made it but only just in time!  This is The Sage in Gateshead Quays and I took the photo which it represents when we went to Durham to see our grandson graduate in Durham Cathedral. I'm trying to be more adventurous by using fabrics not normally in my stash.  I bonded strips of silks onto Steam-a-seam 2 lite and laid them onto fabrics representing sky, grass and the river Tyne.  The whole of the building was covered with polyester mesh and then all stitched down while the rest was free machine quilted.


  1. Isn't great to discover new ways of working? Love the result you got with these layers.

  2. Great work Ann, bring it and explain sometime.

    looks reminiscent of the Sydney Opera House!

    There, thats an idea!
