Working on Passage

The working title for this piece is Passage. I had alays thought that the boulder formations, which recede in size, form a sort of passageway. Today, I re-cut those forms so that I have used the same hand-dyed silk. I then cut some square to delinieate the passage. Here is a photo of them pinned in place.


I had to make an early dinner and go to our EFM class at the cathedral. During the class, I had an epiphany. I needed to make the squares recede in size so that the perspective would be right. I came home and watched Dancing with the Stars which I had taped. Then, I re-cut some new shapes. I like what is happening. I have fused the thing, so I better like it!!


Now, I have to decide if it needs any more design elements or surface design or just machine quilting. Sometimes, less is more. This fabric is so rich and complex.

    I didn’t know you were doing EFM. Wonderful. Yes… this quilt is all about the fabric. I can’t wait to see more.

    It’s pretty good the way it is. Has a lot of depth and movement, something I don’t see very often in art qults.

    It’s coming along nicely. Great fabrics. Isn’t it fitting to have an epiphany at church?!

    I vote for simple stitching to accentuate the movement of the squares. Those silks are gorgeous 🙂
