PAM BEALING email@example.com Quilting is my passion and my means of escape. Having been interested in textiles since an early age, I discovered quilting 13 years ago and have tried my hand at many techniques. Since completing my City and Guilds in Patchwork and Machine Embroidery, I have leaned towards modern and contemporary quilt designs, with my main fulfilment being achieved with the combination of machine embroidery and quilting. I am fascinated by the extra dimensions achieved with the final addition of quilting and embroidery. I enjoy working with a mix of hand dyed and hand painted as well as commercial fabrics. My current journey has been inspired by a number of visits to the Cornish coast – the colours of the sea and sky are constantly changing whilst the ebb and flow of the tide with the resulting textures, marks and shadows on the beach, rocks and landscape have influenced my design ideas and provided a wealth of inspiration for the final machine quilting and hand stitching.
