Quilting is a craft that I haven't tried in any meaningful way but I enjoy the idea of having a narrative running through embroidered works. I think I've always had a preconceived idea of quilting that it's a little bit old fashioned and lacking in the cutting edge approach of modern embroiderers. Val Jackson proved me wrong!
Val creates quilted works by machine embroidering through layers of silks and netting. Although her works have an element of nostalgia they depict modern life through text interspersed with images, which keeps it fresh.
