I must crave your indulgence as this is obviously out of time.  I had started it so it seemed a shame not to complete it.
I have been interested in using traditional blocks and layouts in a contemporary way for some time.  I have experimented with log cabin, a four square block and the strippy to date and these provide parameters from the outset so there is a challenge.
This work is based on my 'Tyne Reflections' pictures and design work again, manipulated into a strippy.  I have tried to be more adventurous with the colours I have used for my quilting by introducing more colour contrasts than I usually do.
I feel that the format is appropriate as the strippy was a popular form of quilt construction in the north-east.


  1. so glad you finished and posted this piece. What can I say but I like it.

  2. I like this one a lot, especially the blue parts.

  3. Yes, a really interesting piece. Like Wil I really like those blue bits. Are they printed on the fabric or were they added later?
