A Whole New Palette

I know that I haven't shown much going on in my studio lately, but I am working on a new Skinny Wiggly piece, this one in warm colors, much like this summer.

 Most of these are my hand dyes, but I did have to fill in with commercial (gasp!) solids. I did a fair amount of dyeing for this,  but couldn't always get the colors I wanted.

My FiberWorks annual challenge this year is Transformation.  I toyed with a lot of ideas, but kept coming back to a color transformation.  I'm going with Yellow to Red.

All works this year are to be mounted on stretched artist canvases that are 24" x 30" in portrait orientation.  My little squares are 3 1/2" that will sew down to 3" and my finished piece will be 21" x 27", leaving a 1 1/2" border all around.

Here it is a little farther along. It will end up as very dark red in the lower right corner.

Since this one is not a secret I can show it to you as I progress.  I hope to finish the piecing soon.

I'm linking up with Off the Wall Friday.  Go see what everyone else is up to.

Beautiful palette! My absolute favorite range of colors!

We're on a similar wavelength -- my next palette is very similar.
