Martha & Nick’s Quilt

This was a commission for Christmas from Martha to Nick. It’s a 2.5 x 2metre quilt backed with 100% wool. The constellations, in the middle, are the northern hemisphere (kit bought from Haptic Lab) Martha came up with the concept and  i made it happen! The surrounding shapes are inspired by the mountain ranges around Chamonix (Mont Blanc, Aigle de Midi, etc.). It’s definitely the largest item i’ve made to date and took me roughly 95 hours (give or take…)

Here are some detailed pictures from the commission.

 

The stars where embroidered in glow in the dark thread! Thank you to Martha for the picture.

Converse Google+ Workshop

Back in November i successfully pitched to Converse and Google+ to run a Chuck Hack workshop. My idea was to patchwork and quilt a pair of Converse and in turn teach a class how to do it too. Originally booked for 12, i ended up with a mammoth class of 20! The trainers pictured above are currently on tour around Europe.
