Jean Chisholm of Chard, Somerset and Sorcha Torrens from Bristol were 2 entries from region 5 out of nearly 50 in the miniature category at the 2017 Festival of Quilts. A year in plants was Jean's entry and included hand painting, machine embroidery, hand stitching and machine stitching. This is a new departure for her as she has entered garments in the 3-D category before.
Sorhca's entry is a mix of applique and machine quilting using Oakshott fabrics (a supplier based in Gloucester) and Hobbs fusible wadding. The bear was added to give scale to the mountains.
