Bad Rain: A Double-Page Bedspread

Following on from the impending launch of her first book, mentioned a couple of posts back, I'm excited to bring you another piece of Ferret news, this time with a cancerous twist.

Bad Rain, one of Ferret's current projects, is approaching completion. This is particularly cool for me, as the piece is a faithful but still innovative reinterpretation of one of Cancertown's key moments. Anyone who's read the book ought to recognise it immediately from the work-in-progress images on Ferret's blog, reproduced below with permission.

The quilt itself is going to be enormous - over ninety inches across, so you can imagine the amount of work that's going into it. Actually, scratch that. There's no way you or I can imagine how much effort it takes to produce something of this size and complexity.

Bad Rain is scheduled to appear at this August's Festival of Quilts in Birmingham. I can't wait to see the end result, and I really can't wait to see Stephen Downey's reaction when he sees it in person.
