Gretha Steyn's quilts are designed and inspired by
art, beading and fabric sourced from across Africa and the world. Each quilt is
of art that combines (where used) the artist's initial work with intricate
stitching, vibrant fabrics and clever use of traditional quilting techniques and
Each quilt is finished with at least
one fabric envelope on the back, containing the details of that specific quilt.
"South Africa is like a patch-work quilt. It is divided into
segments, each colourful, individual, self-contained, and yet is linked to its
fellows to make a whole, surprising in its variety, inexhaustible in its funds
of human stories"
-T.V. Bulpin (Lost
trails of the Low Veld)
