October Meeting with Helen Keenan

3 11 2013

We had an inspiring and exciting talk by Helen at our October meeting. She gave us a slideshow of how digital images inspired her and led to an idea for a quilt.  This was followed by her showing us many of the actual quilts she had made.  The colour, stitching, detail and ideas were absolutely breathtaking and very inspiring.  The room was full with almost all our members present  so we provided a receptive and grateful audience for what proved to be a brilliant evening.    I was particularly taken with a small flower quilt that had been designed to go outside  and had survived months in the sun and rain.  It was soft and a little frayed but looked remarkably good considering where it had been.  I’m planning something similar for for sculpture in the garden next year. Helen’s website is here and well worth a look:  http://helenkeenan.co.uk/

Her photo galleries show many of the quilts that we enjoyed.
