New Work

I just finished this piece and am calling it Sister Sun. Its actually a trial for a much larger work that still need to be quilted. I have all the threads ready beside the machine and I'll try and get a start on it tomorrow.
The fabric is Essex cloth (a blend of linen and cotton) and is quickly becoming one of my favourite fabrics to work with. It takes the dye beautifully and quilts like a dream. Of course, I also used some soy wax resist on it so the fabric went through several processes before I was able to use it. That's the beauty of exploration! This piece measures 16" square.
