I revisited a mini quilt I did from the “quilts for sleep” series. This one is more than twice the originals size and I hand painted it with fabric dyes. 15×14″; Raw silk, Wool, cotton , dyes, ink and a variety of threads.

I am working on finishing up a series of all tonal white quilts heres a shot of some of them waiting to be worked on.

these quilts I made in the colors of the “national terror alert system” which is supposed to help us understand the state of risk we are in. to me this was the most ridiculous thing I had heard. I made these awkward sized quilts of different weight fabrics and batting equipped with different supplies one might need during the appropriate color of terror.

Here are some photos of the embroidery process I used to create the fleas.   I am changing the way I do this because I feel that these lose the feeling of hand made with how sewn they are. its very difficult to see the stitches in photo but its also difficult to see them in life since they are pretty dense, the next batch will be looser and have more of a hand quality.

I have been working on some new techniques.  The last post of my work I showed some drawings that I had been working on using different types of inks and application techniques.  I incorporated that into quilting.  The first image is of a quilt made of cotton papers, it is hand sewn and has cotton batting in between the layers of paper.

These next few images are of a series I am now getting into which is the same “ink” process but on fabric.  I have been working on ways to achieve the same outcome as the paper paintings/drawings.

machine embroidered on printed cotton

the next is on raw silk.  (in progress-front)

and the reverse side (in progress)

I have several more hours of embroidery left and I need to think more about display issues.  but I would love to hear some feedback.  I will be working on other harbingers of disease in the coming weeks.

I am not a big drawer but I am trying to be.  This class I am taking requires quite a bit of drawing so I have been working on my own form of drawing using inks, paper and some fabric.  on one sample I sewed a bit lets call it free motion thread drawing.    I took mainly close-ups.  I think that they are reall interesting as bits.  Somehow I am going to work that angle.. I think.

these are studies for possible quilt ideas.  just a way to explore different compositions, color and texture.  I’ll keep posting them as I fine tune and then finally get to the quilt.

I realized that There are a few works that I finished up and never posted. so here they are.

string quilt, hand dyed cotton. machine pieced and quilted.

hand woven scarf. Bamboo yarns.


As soon as I get my camera back I will be posting the scarf since I overdyed it as well as a small series of quilts I did entitles “Quilts for the American People During Terror”  a sarcastic series of five mixed media quilts. I will also be posting about a new series I am struggling with.  Its in the very beginning stages and needs lots more thought, research and feedback.  

I am heading to Florida to enjoy a quick vacation: take in art at Ringling Museum and get some work by artist Tomas Garcia. I’ll be back here in a few days!
