Yesterday's News - Tomorrow's Promise

MACS Quilt Challenge Exhibition

The first round of this unusual exhibition was a challenge by the Midlands Arts and Crafts Society (MACS) to artists and crafters to make a 'quilt' with a difference. The Gallery invited MACS to repeat the challenge in order to hang the results in the Schreiner Gallery. Once again, members of the creative community were invited to enter A4 size 'quilts' made from unusual materials along the same theme: Yesterday's News - Tomorrow's Promise.

MACS had asked artists to ignore pretty fabrics and to use anything from paper to metal. Traditionally quilts have 3 layers, but such decisions depended on the imagination of the makers. The result is a vibrant exhibition of unusual 'mini quilts' created from a wide variety of materials.
