Zimmerman Art Gallery is delighted to support the Quilt Symposium Manawatu 2015, by featuring a small selection of contemporary quilts by Convenor Dianne Southey.

"I've been quilting for around 28 years, and love how I can create so much with fabric - not just traditional patchwork, but taking it to a new level and experimenting with design and techniques. I love to stretch the boundaries and create things with fabric, and then add machine quilting for detail and texture." - Dianne Southey (Convenor Quilt Symposium Manawatu 2015 and Member of Stellar Quilts Group)

The quilt featured in this listing is "High Country Landing". For this quilt Dianne used pre-fused scraps of fabric to make the Kea, and then hand dyed the fabric for the background. Machine quilting was used to create more detail in the design.

Dianne's small selection of contemporary quilts will be displayed at Zimmerman Art Gallery for the duration of the Symposium (Friday 16 January to Wednesday 21 January 2015).
