new work started

I started four small new pieces yesterday, a little series if you will. This past fall I did a series of small art quilts with the theme house/home that I really enjoyed, and this has been percolating for a while now. So I started a slightly bigger version of those, in different materials and techniques. The previous were all on cotton sateen, drawn in Neocolor crayons and stitched with variegated rayon thread. The variegated rayon thread is the only thing that stayed for these. They are made of silk blend scraps, dryer sheets, Dye-Na-Flow and Textile paints from Jacquard. I'm having fun with these... here are some progress shots...

The color is wonderfully saturated. Can't wait to see how they turn out.
