What's New in the Studio this Week

These are quickie photos of several quilt tops I am in the middle of.  I worked on these at the retreat I was on a few weeks ago. Nothing like spending dedicated time with fabric and a sewing machine adjacent a room full of like-minded-folks to get one's creative juices flowing!
Solid blocks are folk art cat images or florals; alternating blocks are charm-type squares that started life as 2 inch strips. 
Yes it is bright and bold; golds and blues; small center panel of X's; the plan is to expand.
Hodge Podge Scraps Galore!  Just the beginning.

Inspiration at Dia Beacon

Dia Beacon is an amazing modern art museum in Beacon, NY that I visited last Saturday.
The sheer size of the massive installations was breath taking. An the unusual display of one-of-a-kind ideas was awe inspiring. 
Here are a few pictures.

Flower Power to a Friend

Karen Belsky Loprete died two weeks ago, on August 1st. She was a creative woman with an incredible zest and flair for art. I cannot believe she is gone.

To all who knew her, let us embrace her spirit and joy. Let us sing higher, quilt vividly and stitch with abandon. Rest in peace dear friend.

Healing Art of Pathology

I have been offline for a bit. Sorry about that. Unexpected happenings sometimes hit and we have to deal with them. Glad you are still checking on me my friend!
Work in Progress

Although I have not been blogging I have been making art. Here are three updates about my studio:

  • My fabric collage "Water Spout" is going to be the cover image for a book, The Healing Art of Pathology, to be published later this year by the American College of Pathologists.
  • Several other pieces were chosen for an online exhibit by Midwest Fiber Arts Trail  and Fiber Art Almanac. More details on this to follow. 

All the best,
