My "Dinner in Shanghai" will be hanging in the Central Maine Artist Gallery during the month of July. I am kinda excited about that. My Art Quilt Guild is putting on a show and "Dinner in Shanghai" will be one of about 30 textile pieces that will be hung. The art gallery owner is quite excited about the show. He says it is the first textile art he has presented.
"Washed" will be hanging in the Maine State Quilt show the 4th weekend in July. It needs to have a perimeter of 100" which is larger than I originally planned for the piece. I was happy making a small piece but now it will grow to 30" by 25" to fit the size requirements. Question--how many washers can be sewn onto a piece of fabric before it rips from the weight? LOL I do plan to make washers of other materials for the piece. Over the weekend I tried to make some from a lovely foil wrapping off a spiral sliced ham. Unfortunately the foil melted when I tried to fuse it. I haven't given up. I think the next technique will be to try the glue for foiling techniques.
