Criminal Quilts

Our next meeting is Thursday April 5th when Ruth Singer will give a talk entitled Criminal Quilts.

“This ongoing series of work was originally initiated following a commission for Shire Hall Gallery (now closed) in late 2012, inspired by photographs of women criminals with their hands on their chests. The first series of six miniature quilts has been purchased by the Shire Hall Gallery and is now displayed outside the 18th century court room. I have continued to make new pieces in this series since 2013 including Criminal Quilts: Hanging (made 2015) which won the Fine Art Quilt Masters competition at the Festival of Quilts 2016, and a number of small and large pieces which were shown in my solo exhibition Narrative Threads.
