My exhibit inspired by the Mary Ware notebook, Nine Yards or Thereabouts was selected for the 2016 Fine Art Quilt Masters Exhibition at the Festival of Quilts. The research I carried out for this project was published in the Summer 2017 edition of the The Quilter magazine.

I have recently completed the second piece of work in my Mary Ware inspired series. Titled ‘Double strike’ the work references the innovative printing process the Wares used. Each print was printed twice, once using copperplate and a second time to add colour, using woodblocks.
