In the May session we explored the latest Suitcase Collection from Contemporary Quilt. 43 quilts on the theme of 'All in a days work'. Some lovely techniques and compositions on show and some interesting compositions. We then went on to imagine that we were curating an exhibition. How would we select 10-15 quilts? Considering theme and approach? What influence does technique and execution have on the decision? How would the quilts be displayed? The exercise raised some interesting discussions and thoughts on the process. Useful for all to sit on the 'other side of the fence' for a change and made many realise that rejection may have nothing to do with the quality of a quilt but everything to do with simply not 'fitting' with the vision of a curator or an individual exhibition.
