I made these mini art quilts in response to a paper bag challenge, where you pulled scraps of fabric out of a paper bag without looking and used them no matter what. I prepared the backgrounds beforehand and arranged the random scraps on each one before adding hand stitching in a free and intuitive way with vintage French wool embroidery thread as well as some cotton threads.

The title, ‘dare to dream’, came about because even though 2020 was a difficult year on many levels I wanted to represent it as a beginning, not an end. I also had a serious health diagnosis at this time, followed by lengthy treatment. Being positive and looking forwards, not backwards, really helped me through.

My hope is that each little quilt will also help you ‘dare to dream’!

Size: 6” x 8 “ (15 cm x 20 cm)

Fabrics: commercial and naturally dyed fabrics, including cotton, linen, silk and artist’s cleanup wipes

“As a designer, artist and passionate upcycler, my underlying philosophy is to create products and source materials as ethically as I can. I find and reinvent vintage and preloved clothing, fabrics and other materials with natural dyes and deconstruction techniques, allowing them to inspire my work. Materials for eco dyeing are mostly foraged from our own property, where I can manage the trees and plants respectfully. My business is based in northeastern Tasmania, Australia; this is where I display and sell my work, host exhibitions, and run workshops.”
