Winner of the Fine Art Quilt Masters 2016

I’m astonished and delighted to have won the Fine Art Quilt Masters competition at the Festival of Quilts today for my piece Criminal Quilts: Hanging.

Huge thanks to my friend, supporter and mentor Liz Cooper for encouraging me to push on with this work, the judges and the sponsors and of course to Staffordshire Records Office and Shire Hall Gallery for initiating this entire series of work starting with a commission four years ago.  True to form, I immediately started spending my winnings on antique textiles and vintage threads!
