Nandini Harikrishnan

Country: India

Dimensions: 244 x 239 x 1
Artist Statement/ Description/ Method: This black beauty was created during the Lockdown when all I could get was scraps of black and white fabrics to which I added colors to make it look what it is, as a colorful spiky quilt. It is a simple rail fence pattern with added spikes. This quilt shows how you can create just about anything if you play with blocks and placements. I would like to thank Janet Mednick for her Black Tooth Pattern and Tina Katwal for beautifully quilting this Sparkling Black quilt.

Birds and the Bees
Birds and the Bees
Jaishri Harishankar

Country: India

Dimensions: 229 x 148 x 1
Artist Statement/ Description/ Method: As a tribute to Nature, I began working on this quilt much before this pandemic struck the world. Ironically my theme, which is only a very small representation of Nature, became all the more important to send out a subtle yet strong message to do our best to appreciate, cherish and preserve Nature as best as we possibly can. Putting the pieces together was like a jig saw puzzle I had created. Many of the piecing techniques, especially FPP were new to me and extremely challenging, but Tina Katwal my teacher had confidence in me encouraged and convinced me that I could do it. But for her I could never have completed this quilt. The end result proved to be so satisfying that it has encouraged me to boldly undertake more such challenges.

The materials and the creative designs had their place but what mattered most were the mentoring, the sharing, the camaraderie, and the generosity of spirit that formed the bedrock of this stunning transformation. This work is a crisscrossing of all humanity – a little piece of each of us.

Juna K T

Country: india

Dimensions: 147 x 74 x 0.5
Artist Statement/ Description/ Method: Truly inspired from my sons favorite author Eric Carle. We have four seasons in a year -Spring ,Summer , Autumn and Winter . The idea was to create the different seasons through activity learning. Each day we learned different seasons and choose the colors they appear and there changes with at most observation. We went out in the garden collecting flowers and leaves. As part of the activity the fabric was stuck by my son Vasisht. The reason I choose season was for him to understand that everything around him keeps changing every second. Anything you like will never stay forever and every change is for a good cause for him to grow up to be a strong son.

EPISTEME
Uma Kannal

Country: India

Dimensions: 134 x 98 x 1
Artist Statement/ Description/ Method: This composition is inspired by a cryptic diagram, believed to be the representation of the goddess of learning - Devi Saraswati. It normally is drawn in lines, with clinical precision and without masses and colours. It is a perfectly balanced form with an intrinsic potential of endless growth but I always found it a little static. I tried to add some dynamic elements to it by enlivening the lines that shoot up in various directions. I also supplemented it with the riot of primary colours to enhance the complexity of that form. I wanted to underline the symbolic significance of this form so I did the quilting in whirling lines in Kantha stitch to indicate the flow of knowledge from this mysterious core which is stitched with hidden tie.
