There are people who don't think of fiber art as something to put on their walls. I like to put my newest quilt up on our dining room wall, so I can look at it for awhile until the next one comes along. I have a hanging rod that I can slip it into, which makes it easy to change from one to another. But sometimes that is too high, and I have to measure and hang it lower. I love the fall colors on this one, and the lavender too!

Summer has flown by so fast, as it always does. To me, fall is the beginning of the year, and I am looking forward to a visit with new friends, a fabric dyeing class and a visit with grandchildren. Now that I am home I was able to finish another work, based on the connection of shapes. I love orange, and in this piece used one of my bleach pen fabrics as a focal point. But it is the placement of the squares, where they sit and how they interact with each other that always has me intrigued. This is ColorForm 48, 38"H x 42"W.

I have been working on some new ColorForm pieces-I love incorporating some of the bleach pen fabrics I have made. It is fun to try it on different colors and see what happens. If I am not that crazy about the results, I have been using that fabric for my labels on the back of the quilt.

I was reorganizing some of my quilts, and found this one rolled up from 2007 - one of my early quilts. It must have been from when I took a Nancy Crow workshop. I always loved working with those lines. The next one I finished recently. This one I had made a few months ago, put in my closet, and forgot about it. Now I want to try some new ideas I have for quilting. Having been to some quilt shows recently, I notice how people often peer up close to a quilt-so maybe I should have more for them to see!
