Tradition with a Twist

Jean Weller

There are two streams of quilting – the traditional, which adheres to the colonial rules or precision in design and stitching within a standard block or prescribed pattern, and the art quilt where any material held together in three layers is considered to be a quilt – be they chicken wire and pink fibreglass held together by rivets, or painted canvas stapled to a flexible backing.

This show as the title suggests, leans toward the traditional, but ignores to a large extent the old rules of precision. Thus, sometimes blocks, points and corners do deliberately do not match as in Giselle, or in the case of Let Me Count the Ways, the quilt is made with several major errors. It is the overall effect of colour and movement which counts here, not precise accuracy.
