India Adventure

My first visit to India via a textile tour was magical and gave me a glimpse into the history, culture and people of this fascinating country. India Adventure is an exhibition of 8 quilts in response to the explosion of sensory overload that is India.

One of my surface design interests is frottage, so being able to produce some rubbed fabric while travelling imbued my cloth with a real sense of place. Along with the block printed cottons, silks, and embroidered patches I bought, this has formed the backbone of the exhibition quilts, souvenirs of the holiday.

The exhibition was seen in France at Quilt Expo en Beaujolais April 18-21, 2013. View the online gallery.
