In 2009 my eldest son, then six years old, joined a boys' gymnastics club. Watching the senior members of his club at their training inspired me to make this quilt. I have depicted the six events in men's artistic gymnastics (MAG): still rings, floor exercise, pommel horse, parallel bars, vault and high bars, and tried to capture the movement, grace and sheer power of the gymnasts.
