English patchwork

This week in the Art Textiles class at BA we have been looking at the work of Paul Klee and were inspired by his more grid like patterns in paintings of buildings. These translated well into little stitched pieces of traditional English type patchwork. A great way to use up small scraps of fabric.

Rustic house

A little rustic fabric house inspired by the artist John Blockley - a sample for next weeks class at Brewery Arts. Made from last over woollen fabric from the BBs exhibition 'Suited' at Stroud last year and with silk scraps for added colour.
