Lutterworth Piecemakers welcomed Alison Brimley to their monthly meeting this week and we were instantly aware of the feast of colour her quilts presented. Hanging either side at the front were 2 tryptics in a glorious riot of colour!  "Italy" and "York"We really enjoyed her talk and were fascinated by the many samples she sent round the room for us to handle and see in detail how she achieves her effects.
The York tryptic had been made for the York 800 celebrations and had been hung in the York City Art Gallery 1st to 16th November 2012. The 3 panels depicting York's iconic buildings in a riot of colourful silk. Stunning!
