Our Isaac Newton Challenge is gaining momentum and I would like to have more images of your quilts, either “work in progress” or “finished” work, to feature here on the website. The first two quilts to be revealed are from Joan and Deborah.
Jean Proud has sent this image of her beautiful representation of the famous apple tree in the garden of Newtons home, Woolsthorpe Manor.
Deborah Mullins has sent two images of her ingenious Newton “Word Search” Quilt.
Deborah says…”I wanted to create something that would detain people, make them want to stand in front of it and scrutinise it, rather than just wander past. So I chose to create a word search about Sir Isaac Newton, his work, his contacts and his life. There was so much material to choose from, enjoyable research to find some more obscure aspects of his work, and a bit of fun putting the word search together. There are 30 words to find, which can be put on the ‘label’ next to the quilt – some obvious, others a bit trickier”. What a great idea!
