Shelter card quilt part two

Hey, Sophia here. I’m back from a very exhausting but very lovely Glastonbury festival (Madness, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and Blur in the same 4 hours!). Just thought I’d post a quick update before getting back to blogging properly. Before I left for Glasto I finished sewing my entry for Amelia’s Shelter Card quilt. It looks rather simple (especially compared to some of the other awesome entries) but I think I still like it.

Shelter Card quilt

Shelter is a pretty cool housing rights charity. They’re organising a fundraising art auction based on the idea that the entire housing market seems as fragile as a house of cards.

A friend has been asked to produce a piece of artwork on the ‘Two of Hearts’ and they’re asking for lots of people to submit playing card designs of the two of hearts with which to make a pseudo quilt. Check out here for the design brief and this facebook event for some of the designs so far.

I’m planning on joining in. So far all I’ve done is sketch out an idea and gather the fabric I plan on using. It’s gonna be very bright and the level of detail will depend on how distracted I am in the coming week. Please feel free to take part and submit something to the open brief because Shelter is a great cause. Or just check out their website.
