City & Guilds Final piece finished at last

So, after 28 months of studying, my last assessment piece for my City & Guild patchwork and quilting certificate is now done. It has been a fascinating journey to get here – and I am proud of having made the leap I wanted to when I started: from traditional patchwork to art quilt. I never expected it would lead me into art college, but that’s the roller coaster that life is!

Here are some pics of the finished piece – it’s a triptych called Broken Memory , looking at the pain of suffering from dementia and watching the minds of those you love disappear. I would like to think others see something of this in the final pieces, each of us knows someone who has had the pain of a broken memory.




The photos don’t do the textural detail and justice. I think you have to look at it close up. I want to show this at Festival of Quilts this year, so you’ll just have to come up to Birmingham to see it!

Now let’s just hope my C&G assessors like it as well….!
