Once I counted 32 different patterns in a guesthouse in Lithuania. Here are just two. ⠀@lenkaclaytonstudio @joannamartine #contemporaryart #documentary #fragment #patchwork #joannawright #lenkaclayton #collaboration #tumblingblock #2iq #repair #quilt #paperpiecing #quiltmaking #handstitching #handmade #maker #fabric

We get to hear all the best stories when we sit quietly and sew... ⠀⠀⠀⠀@lenkaclaytonstudio @joannamartine #contemporaryart #documentary #fragment #patchwork #joannawright #lenkaclayton #collaboration #tumblingblock #2iq #repair #quilt #paperpiecing #quiltmaking #handstitching #handmade #maker #fabric

We're not making a catalogue to convince you to take part in Two Itinerant Quilters though we forgive you for thinking that if you are. Would you like to take part? ⠀@lenkaclaytonstudio @joannamartine #contemporaryart #documentary #fragment #patchwork #joannawright #lenkaclayton #collaboration #tumblingblock #2iq #repair #quilt #paperpiecing #quiltmaking #handstitching #handmade #maker #fabric

Lost in archives this weekend. Another pattern published by the Ladies Art Company, 1895. The Ladies Art Company placed small ads in ladies magazines and farm papers for their catalogue. From the catalogue, the pattern was ordered and mailed to the customer. Up until the 1950s the patterns consisted of a pattern card with a colour suggestion for the quilt block, and an envelope containing full size, tissue paper templates of each shape needed to complete the block. (The earliest versions of the pattern cards were hand painted with water colours by the owner's children.) ⠀⠀⠀From the Cuesta Benberry Collection⠀at Michigan State University Museum⠀⠀⠀⠀#ladiesart #archive #quiltindex #documentary #fragment #patchwork #joannawright #lenkaclayton #collaboration #tumblingblock #2iq #repair #quilt #paperpiecing #quiltmaking #handstitching #handmade #maker #fabric#pattern

choosing a replacement patch for the repair we'll make can be a tricky business⠀⠀@lenkaclaytonstudio @joannamartine #patches #documentary #fragment #patchwork #joannawright #lenkaclayton #collaboration #tumblingblock #2iq #repair #quilt #paperpiecing #quiltmaking #handstitching #pattern #diamond #fabric

One of our many temporary work-spaces from above. The quilt fragment you see here is made up from diamonds cut from the clothing of over 300 passers-by. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀@lenkaclaytonstudio @joannamartine #contemporaryart #documentary #fragment #patchwork #joannawright #lenkaclayton #collaboration #tumblingblock #2iq #repair #quilt #paperpiecing #quiltmaking #handstitching #handmade #maker #fabric #studio

@twoitinerantquilters
It's equally thrilling and terrifying to cut a diamond-shaped hole in the clothing of someone you've only just met.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀@lenkaclaytonstudio @joannamartine #contemporaryart #documentary #fragment #patchwork #joannawright #lenkaclayton #collaboration #tumblingblock #2iq #repair #quilt #paperpiecing #quiltmaking #handstitching #handmade #maker #fabric
