Finally, I have something new to show. Not that I haven't been working, but they are things that I don't want to publish yet, since some shows have that stipulation. This little piece is for a show at the Mahopac Library this June, put on by a fiber group I belong to, FANE (Fiber Artists of the North East). The pieces will each be mounted on 18" white canvases, as they were in our last show and can be no bigger than 14" on each side.

If it looks familiar, it's because it's a smaller version of one of the quilts I made for the Gray Pus One show, No Elephants Here. I so wanted to add bits of red to that quilt but was constrained by the rules, which said "gray plus only ONE other color." It was difficult to work this small. The original was 18" x 24" and this one is only 13" square. All those strips are about a quarter of an inch wide with the tiny inserts even smaller. I haven't decided how to quilt it. I can't do what I did with the first one, so I will think about it for a few days and post it when it's done.
