Hand dyed cottons, fused, machine quilted. 34x40" $500
This is a quilt that I made in 2008 and never quilted until yesterday. I don't know what prevented it originally, since I was already here, and retired. Perhaps I didn't understand its artistic value then. It is so simple and clear compared to the other things I was making at the time. Now I see it as a strong statement, no fiddle faddle!
Or I may not have quilted it because straight line quilting hadn't entered my consciousness yet. So it was right to wait, and now is THE TIME.
I am so glad to have resurrected it.
Hand dyed silk shantung, hand dyed cotton and cheesecloth.

Where have these quilts been hiding? Up in the garage attic. I sent Dave up there and he brought down a huge bag of mostly finished work, with only a few unquilted pieces in the mix.
I plan to go through the collected works and featured them on the blog in future days.
By the way, I see that I have now 900 followers!!! How thrilling, and so glad to have you here visiting me. It is so encouraging. Thanks!
