Mapping the Imagination - exhibition and book

It's been a long time since I posted in this blog.  I have been very busy, and these are the results of my 'busyness':

1.  I am having a solo exhibition gallery at the Festival of Quilts, at the NEC Birmingham, next week, from 7th to 10th August.  You can find my gallery, "Mapping the Imagination" in location B31.  Come and visit!

2.  I have been putting together a book/catalogue of my map quilts, which includes my new quilts made for this exhibition, plus a selection of previous quilts made in the last few years.  As a bonus, the book contains a chapter explaining step-by-step the basics of pieced map-making.

3.  I am also the Curator of the Wide Horizons IV exhibition (for members of SAQA's European and Middle East region), which will open at the European Patchwork Meeting (Carrefour du Patchwork), at Ste Marie aux Mines, Alsace, 18th - 21st September.

The book will be available at my gallery at the Festival of Quilts, and can also be ordered from the online shop of Through Our Hands: Click here to go to the site

Here is a taster of the cover of the book:

Hope to meet lots of you at the Festival next week!
