The photos are coming in thick and fast! This one is from Gill Lewis who is in the enviable position of having finished her quilt by the look of it. Gill says…..”No title yet but the refraction speaks for itself”.

I’ve got to admit I’ve found the Isaac Newton challenge a difficult one to get my head around but at last I’m making a start.
Although I love doing my “tree” quilts I didn’t want this one to be all about that tree! So how about the planets? Or maybe Newtons cradle? I still wasn’t feeling it……..and then in an attempt to help me see things differently Pat Cave asked me to consider “what excites you”? Straight away the answer came……texture and line. Suddenly I knew exactly what I was going to do!
My fabrics are fairly monotone but the overall effect will be very linear with various different textures added including metallic threads and metal trims…..at least that’s the idea!
Please keep those images coming in so we can show folk what we are up to! The latest photos we’ve been sent are from Pat Sperr who says of her hand dyed, whole cloth quilt……”this is a photo of my Newton “work in progress”. It is based (loosely) on Newton’s discovery of light refraction, and will be called Fractured Light.”
We only launched this site in October but with all the recent activity it’s starting to really take off!
For anyone who is interested in statistics the WordPress.com stats “helper monkeys” have sent our 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 800 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 13 trips to carry that many people.
Gill Lewis has sent in a photograph of her quilt which is a fabulous version of Hockney’s 18th VN painting.
The first meeting of the newly formed Lincolnshire Quilting group LINQS met at The Coach and Horses in Billinghay on Saturday 4th September. Hosted by Sheila, it was a lively affair with lots of questions, suggestions and ideas for the type of projects we are all considering. Mary hit the nail on the head when she said that there were “no shrinking violets”! Some of the ladies brought along their “work in progress” which was wonderful to see while others brought copies of David Hockney books for the rest of us to browse through.
The idea of this challenge is not to hide your work away or be secretive about ideas, techniques etc. It’s more about discovering together and encouraging and nurturing the ideas and work of others. The following photos were taken at the gathering and show some of the quilts that have already started taking shape.
