I've been invited by Visions Art Museum, in San Diego, to create two 24x24 inch quilts to be exhibited July 18- October 4th, 2015. The theme is "Balboa Park Arches" to coincide with the park's 100th anniversary.
The photo above is just the beginning. I've collaged and fused the cotton fabrics, organza, paper and tea bags onto a piece of felt a bit larger than 24x24 inches.
I've done just a bit of machine stitching, mostly to hold the pieces in place.
Next, I'm going to cut it into small pieces... and hand stitch them. And then reassemble them.

And below, in my front yard, is the preparation of rusting some cotton fabric and silk organza.
