Appliqué Protests

A collage of six images of pieces with appliquéd writing. Clockwise from top left: trans rights are human rights; Tory manifesto: corrupt, cynical and cruel; never Tony, never Tory; They threw us under a big red bus; more food banks than mcd's; vote Tory if you want to swim in sewage.

I have been making these…protest appliqués over the past few months. I have ideas for many more. Living in Tory Britain leaves us with plenty to protest against…

I am not sure what to do with them all. I have a vague plan to make a bunch more, sew them all together to make a quilt and send that to the Festival of Quilts next year. Not sure if they would display it. It feels like a place where there are quite a lot of Tory voting ladies… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

What would you do with these? And what would you write if you made one?

When I share these on Instagram I use the hashtag RageStitching. ‘Coz I’m angry about how the Tories have torn the country to pieces. :-/

    These are awesome. Maybe one about protecting the NHS?

      Oh yes, there will definitely be one about the NHS. Maybe two! :-)
