Locating – an exhibition by the Quinary Textile Group

I’ve been working on my heirloom quilt today and it reminded me of an exhibition called Locating that I saw at Lansdown Hall & Gallery in Stroud. It was a collection of works by the Quinary Textile Group and my favourite piece was by Val Cross. She found a patchwork cushion on a beach, took it to pieces and made a beautiful sculpture using wire and thread from the pieces. I loved being able to see the original stitch marks and could imagine someone piecing it together like I am sewing my own quilt. So beautiful!
