  1. A friend just described Sarah’s quilts as having ‘sumptuous intelligence’.
    Here is a pic of the early quilt mentioned at the end of the film:


  2. I wasnt able to be there for this show,which I regret.However I posted this on Facebook and received loads of likes and messages as a result.The west country might be a good place to show these quilts,which look beautifull in colour and design.What a class act!


  3. Sarah’s quilts are a welcome addition to the Brancaster discussions with their rich colour vibrations. My difficulty was being able to focus on the work due to their optical qualities: I felt I wanted to stand back further than I could to let them come into focus. But this just might be my eyes! The ones that work better for me were the ones that were a little more broken up in terms of shapes. I struggled more with the more patterned ‘geometrical’ square and triangular works.

      Having just met Sarah I am only now aware of these sumptuous quilts which look to be a welcome departure from the more traditional ‘pretty’ sort I am used to seeing. Punchy and vibrant I hope to see them in the flesh one day. It was good to meet you both, Sarah and Robin.
