Bramble Patch Exhibition

Hi All,
I hope you're making the most of this glorious weather.  I've been very domesticated and got the towels out and have all the windows wide open to blow away the cobwebs.

I visited the  Bramble Patch on Good Friday to catch up with friends and also see an exhibition.  They always have interesting exhibitions and they are always very well displayed.

There were two parts to the exhibition.  The first part was Dislocation by the Contemporary Quilt group, which is a sub group of the Quilters Guild. I've always enjoyed seeing work from this group and would love to join if I didn't have to pay to join the gild too. This work was originally exhibited at the Festival of Quilts in 2014, but it was nice to see it in a smaller venue where you weren't overwhelmed by the size of the venue.  I also enjoy seeing how people interpret themes.

The Shape of Nature had work by Hilary Beattie and Jenny Rolfe.  I have had classes with both and really enjoyed them. Again, another set of interesting work which made me think again about my own work.  I realised that they both really work a theme - and I realise I don't. So this is something I'm going to explore.

Apologies for this being photo light - but follow the links - there are lots of photos there.
