A treasured First Communion dress, transformed with stitch, textile fragments, dyed in seawater on an uninhabited Scottish island, and plastic marine debris stitched into a textile - just 3 of the exciting new contemporary quilts on show in this exhibition by the dynamic Contemporary Quilters West. Textiles used in unusual and innovative ways make for a provocative show.

Many of the artists are inspired by the environment and the local landscape, and each tells their own unfolding story.

CQ West is a group of 25 individuals who came together five years ago, with the aim of supporting and encouraging each other in our individual working practice. We have a wide variety of artistic skills in contemporary quilting and textiles but have a common ground in that stitch forms a part of our work.
Stephanie Crawford, Chair of CQ West
