Patchwork with Shells

My series of patchwork pieces using collagraphs with integrated printed ephemera now has several more pieces. Each section of the quilt pattern is a section of print- some are straight prints, others are layered with a variety of papers from old books, maps etc. This piece has cigarette cards showing seashells arranged in the traditional style of Welsh quilts.
 Previous pices have had the individual pieces arranged according to particular field patterns - A patchwork of little fields (now on show at Hastings museum and art gallery) is and example.
