"Pas de Deux" - Hildegard Müller at EPM 2017

A Secret Garden
Hildegard will have a gallery at the European Patchwork Meeting 2017, September 14th - 17th. Be sure to visit her stand.

For many years, Hildegard has dealt with fabric as basic material as it offers diverse, creative possibilities from coloring to shaping of three-dimensional structures to the insertion of text or non-textile elements.

She started making traditional-style quilts, but then she learned more and more dyeing and construction techniques and developed her own style to create art quilts. She mainly hand-dyes the materials for her work, fabrics like cotton, satin, velvet or silk, as well as different types of paper and most of the yarns are also hand-dyed.

She likes to create several works on one topic, so “Pas de Deux” shows a variety of diptychs, created with hand-dyed materials and various techniques. Her works are inspired by impressions from nature and the environment.

Made in Europe II at West Country Quilt Show in Bristol UK

The West Country Quilt and Textile Show is a small quilt show in Bristol, the one of the UK's largest cities.  The organisers pride themselves on the quality of their galleries and this year, SAQA Europe and Middle East had a gallery for Made in Europe II.

A view with visitors - many of the visitors returned to look again at their favourite work. We had a good stand which enable visitors plenty of space to stand back and look at the quilts. It was also possible to hear many of their comments and get a chance to engage with the visitors.

I will post the quilts which attracted most discussion in the next few posts.

Made in Europe II - Gisha Wogier

Gisha Wogier
Israel
Bridge
Detail

Bridges are a connection and link. They are pathways between people and places. A bridge joins and unites. It represents progress, stability, hope and transition. I love the old steel bridges that you can see in Israel and in Europe. I admire the ability of professionals to build massive structures of steel, bolts and nuts, that bridge over rivers, valleys and roads. The quilt colors are inspired by the color of the Tyne Bridge in Newcastle where we visited
