Ruth Singer’s Criminal Quilt Collaboration

Image

I feel lucky to have my square included in the criminal quilt collaboration project with Ruth Singer at The Festival of Quilts this year.2018 FoQs Ruth Singer Collaborative Quilt tracy fox

The techy geek in me enjoyed playing with the data provided in the Excel spreadsheet and I found it hard to decide what to base my square on from the number of ideas that I had.

I finally choose the ages of the women.

I created a background using my handwriting repeating the words youngest, average, oldest and then printed the numbers 12, 28, 60. And yes the youngest was just 12 years old.

My square is the last one on the 2nd row.

I still have a picture in my head of a piece of work I would like to make and spoke to Ruth at FoQ’s to check it would be ok. I am chuffed to say she said yes so I had better get on with it!

Time for a bit of eco printing

Image

It has been too long since I enjoyed playing with eco-printing so it was added to My To Do List.

My friend cut some cotinus leaves from hegarden for me recently and I have been saving red onion skins so I decided to pull my finger out.

This is a scarf I made ages ago and decided to add some more layers to it.

I also printed onto some smaller pieces of pre-mordanted cotton and another piece I had previously printed on.

Pretty pleased with the results!

Visit to Fragments Exhibition

Image

A good time was had by all who visited the preview of this impressive exhibition at Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery 

Here are some photos to tempt you to visit too!

I have been a fan of Leah’s work for some time and always enjoy seeing it on display, especially this one!  Oh how I wish I had the wall space….

This is ‘Ruins 9: Cottonopolis’ and is inspired by the unused derelict mills of Manchester.

This series named ‘Gas Works’ is inspired by the abandoned gas works on Liverpool Street in Salford.

Helen’s work is inspired in some way by graffiti and these stitched photographic prints are absolutely fab I think.

I love the use of text in art work and enjoy incorporating it into my own work in different ways so it was no surprise that I like Helen’s work.

This is a close up of one of the large ‘City Blocks’ series which uses words for home in a variety of languages, see if you can find it when you visit.

And here are the very talented ladies with the Mayor of Stockport who also paid a visit.

Visit if you can, it’s on ’til end of June.
