Quilts on display

Art quilts which incorporate fabrics using plant motifs can be an inspiration for gardeners and designers. I like to look closely at the combination of colours and intricate patterns. When you photograph them in section you enter into a whole new world of imagination.


  1. Ian, these are some beautiful quilts. What I always wonder are the stories behind the pieces of fabric ~ especially when they are made years ago.

    You are correct about the inspiration, because nt two are alike. There is something always to see no matter how many times one looks at the quilt.

  2. Quilts are something wonderful as they have a long history of women's work. Cold winter nights were made comfortable by colourful quilts. I always use in summer "boutis" as they are so comfortable. Works of art for every day.
