Sherri-Lynn Wood works with people to make improvised quilts from the clothing and materials of everyday life – called Passage Quilting.

Lisa Call‘s quilts are bold statements of urban life, she makes her abstract quilts from her hand dyed fabric. She has exhibited widely and her quilts have been featured in quilt national.

Boo Davis is a punk rock quilter, she makes bold quilts with popular iconic motifs using traditional methods.

Malka Dubrawsky, makes quilts using her own hand dyed fabric – she has recently published her own book describing her fabric dyeing methods.

Victoria Gertenbach‘s quilts are abstract and inspired by the countryside, however the incredible detailed hand stitching stops them from being too modern.

Tomorrow you will meet Lizette Greco, Liz Harvatine, Jude Hill, Lucinda Jones, Alicia Paulson, Meg Spaeth and Sarah Steedman.
