This is round three of the round robin challenge my workshop group has had since we met for a month at FiberFly Studios last spring. I pieced the underlying quilt block then made a copy of it on printable voile. I'm so proud of everyone for continuing to do their pieces!

I've waited a couple of years since my visit to both St. Petersberg, Russia, and St. Pete, FL, to make this piece. While it is cold and snowy in the former, it was actually the visit to the latter which really inspired this quilt. The chunks of industrial glass which create part of an exterior wall at the Chihuly Glass Museum are captured here in fabric and paint.
Off to Australia, both Willy-Willy and I, in October. Willy-Willy (the name for the swirling wind funnels which act like tornadoes) will be on view at the National Museum's upstairs gallery from the end of October into December in Canberra, Australia, along with the work of leading Australian textile art/quilt makers. I'm the only American with work in the show. Lucky me!!

If you will be in or around Laguna Beach in the next few weeks please swing by this gallery which will have two of my embroideries: Flotsam and Jetsam, among many other small works. Check their website for opening hours. Let me know if you stop in.

Six of us spent Sunday at Susan Willen's house dyeing up a storm. Here are some samples from my stash. The first five photos are of work I completed on Sunday, done very precisely as can be seen by the clarity of the crackle. The next day I did more of a general immersion dyeing to use up the left over dyes and those samples are much muddier as is expected. All will, I'm sure, find their way into future art quilts. Keep a look out!
