Art I like - Michele Walker

In the 1990s Michele Walker made innovative, subversive quilts with resonant sociopolitical messages, using plastic and other non-standard materials, like this comment on homelessness -
House Block (1999) is part of The Quilters' Guild of the British Isles' Nineties Collection of commissioned quilts. (Search the entire 20th century collection here.)

I've written about Michele's work before (here and here) - about ten years ago she did research into sashiko and it's taken quite another direction.

Her book, The Passionate Quilter (1992), is still among my favourite quilt books -
