Here is my newest piece inspired by a postage stamp. The challenge was to create a piece using a postage stamp as an inspiration. I poured over many stamps and decided to create a textile piece inspired by the USPS series on Abstract Expressionists of the 1940's and 1950's. I created this piece with a package of batik strips, made in Ghana and purchased from Cultured Expressions. I inserted a small strip in cloth into a larger strip and then created the piece by using the Log Cabin pattern.  I LOVE these batiks, I especially love the colors and the hand.
This piece is hanging at the Guilford Library in Guilford, CT along with other pieces created by my fellow  Sisters In Cloth. The exhibit will run until December 31, 2012. Please stop by.

 I recently designed and created a quilt using fabric sent to me by a bride and groom's family and friends. I didn't know what fabric I would receive and couldn't really design the quilt until all the pieces, swatches and yardage "spoke" to me. Hop on over the Sisters In Cloth blog to read more about this special wedding gift!
