Circles – August 2019

You may remember last year Lindsay S kindly organised a display of members work to exhibit at the West of England Quilt and Textile Show which takes place annually at the end of August at the University of the West of England (UWE) in Bristol.  “Take a line” was so successful that members were keen to take part in the 2019 show.

This year Lindsay asked members to create a piece of work using a canvas 20 cms x 50 cms and include a circle/s somewhere in the design.  The technique, topic and colours was completely up to the individual.  

Thirty two canvases were submitted and just look at the wonderful variety of techniques, themes and colours.
