    Bee Quilt

    The material has been hand dyed with turmeric, tea and onions skins. Then hand printed with lino cuts to represent the larvae, workers, drones and the single queen bee. The quilt was then then pieced, quilted and bound by hand.

    The bees are arranged in a rough imitation of the structure of a hive: the queen is surrounded by workers, each drone and larvae are attended by their own workers, while others form a circle to represent a “bee dance” and some stand guard at the entrance to the hive.

  • Holy Dickens! there are so many of you here! I honestly thought I would check back in and there would be 5 people!!!.

    Couple of quick points of interest. Version 2.0 is coming. Hard details will be out in May. I am just beginning my PhD journey, and have a swag of literature to wade through.

    The Videos WILL go back up on YouTube as soon as I have 2 minutes to upload them from an external source and onto the new YouTube account. 

    Panels for this quilt will be bigger, giving you more room to work with, and I aim to partner up with some great organisations and recovery focused groups.

    There will be a brisbane based sewing group this time to help put it together. And there will also be another participatory project.

    The blog will get a makeover. If any of you out there are HTML literate and have some spare time, maybe we can talk! 

    OK, that is largely it for now. I will continue to check in, but plan to spend the next couple of months with my nose in journals and books trying to organise information. Much love. 

    Spread the Word, also there is the facebook! xx Jess

  • Hey guys, this is the (first) exhibition that featured the patchwork project Delicate Conversations. unlike the documentation video, here you can see it installed with the other artworks =)

    Now, you will need to go to youtube to view it due to copywrite restrictions on the bacckground song.

  • Hey Guys

    I just wanted to note that reblogging the video from the project would be a great way of keeping the project going. At the moment I am trying to figure out if it will be sustainable, but unless people help to promote it, I think this may be the end. which would be sad. 

    Personally, I would love to see this continue and become something amazing.

  • Quick Update =)

    Im still writing the exegesis, but looking into how to keep the project going. Stay tuned for more information, and i Hope to have the video up soon. it needs some editing to fit on youtube sadly. I have had suggestions for other sites, but have decided to keep it to youtube to limit the social media which the project uses xx

The Patchwork Project

Patchwork quilts evoke a sense of yesteryear and quilting bees. Quilting bees were where women (and men) came together to tell stories, often weaving their stories through the quilts that they made together. We have a story. Lets tell it.
