Past the finishing post!
The map is of Chester Racecourse which is why the quilt is called The Roodee and it is a suprise gift for a colleague who loves racing and who appeared to be genuine when he said he liked a previous quilt made with this technique! It is made with mostly handdyed fabrics for the horse and a background painted, stamped and scraped with screen inks. The writing is all about Chester Races, the history of racing in general and the history of Chester. It is 35 x 42 inches.
