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.

This piece is really beautiful. Definitely worth a trip to Guilford to see it in person!
