This was made for a Fast Friday Fabric Challenge about circles.  I enjoyed the various prints from recycled fabrics, and playing with values.  I was rebelling against what I call lollipop flowers, so I made marshmallow ones instead. 
I am thinking I may start machine quilting my backgrounds before adding all the little parts and pieces... I think that would make life much easier.

Looking back

I have been prepping a slide show for a presentation that is coming up soon, and looking through some of my past work.  These pieces have been travelling across the country with the Mancuso quilt shows as part of an exhibit of work by Pamela Allen's online students.  One of my snowbird friends spotted them in the World Quilt Show in New Hampshire this past week!!

This is a roughly pinned portrait that I made last week while away from home.  She just evolved - I really had no idea where I was going until I got well into the piece.  I was subconsciously channeling Modigliani, Picasso, and my idol, Pamela Allen.

Cubist bird

This is a small study I did in an online Pamela Allen class.  It was fun to do and it is FINISHED.  There are some hidden eggs, if you look hard, you'll find three or four.


This has been a week for finishing projects.  Here are two details from a large still life that is FINISHED. 
As you can see, I like mixing a bunch of busy prints.
