LINQS (Lincolnshire Quilters) will be exhibiting their latest body of work, 22 art quilts inspired by Sir Isaac Newton, at the end of this month. Our first venue will be the beautiful Alford Manor House. Built in 1611 it is thought to be the largest thatched manor house in the country.
I’ve finally finished my Newton quilt. It’s 30″ x 40″ and the design is based on the fact that Newton spent a lot of his time studying and practising alchemy. It consists of appliqué commercial fabric, Tyvek and painted vilene applied to a background of tea stained cotton fabric. Other materials used include oil pastels, Inktense, permanent marker pen and metallic foil.
These are just a few of the other fantastic quilts that will be on show……
This next quilt Is called “Wordsearch” and there are thirty words to find, all relating to life of Isaac Newton. An ingenious way of stopping visitors in their tracks and making them really scrutinise your work!

Now that’s an interesting challenge. It looks as if everyone rose to it. Your Newton quilt is beautiful and unique with all the different materials used. Great job!
Thanks Marilyn. I only wish I had taken photos of more of the quilts to show you. I will make sure I get them all photographed when they are hanging in the Manor House at the end of May.
