What I am Working On
Continuing blocks and flows explorations. This quilt top is appliqued from hand dyed and commercial fabrics...now waiting to be layered and quilted.
This one began with a monoprinted image, then appliqued over with a variety of fabrics...quilting in progress.
"Santi, Santi" (pronounced shanti, shanti), a Sanskrit word meaning peace, relates to the theme I chose for my 12" square panel for the Dream Rocket project...in which a Saturn V rocket will be covered with quilted and other fiber art panels! This is another event from the International Fiber Collaborative (you might remember the 2009 tree project and the 2008 gas station project). The Dream Rocket aims to connect art and education through a global collaborative initiative. It will inspire participants to consider, express, and explore their dreams for a better future.
