a quick post

Oh how cute. Too cute for me, but it will have to do. It will be a journal-sized quilt I have to send off to market from fabric I test-printed with a new acrylic paint. If I can figure out how to make it bigger, I will. I've got some other fabric printed with the same paint that I like better and have spent the evening auditioning and trying to figure out how I will use it. I think I'll keep it simple. Spent the afternoon at "the office" (aka the studio)sandwiching a piece between backing and batting and ironing it down. It's not a big piece but it is the only table I have that has enough room for me to deal with putting everything together.This is another piece of fabric I had to print tonight and it looks better i person than in this picture but I'm too lazy to reshoot.Tomorrow, early app't and then off to the Newark Museum to put the 100 squares together. I'll explain tomorrow.

Oh, no, a few naive flowers don't make it cute really. The whole thing has this roughness that balances it out. And the calligraphic piece is great! Together with the stamped circles, it gives an impression of an authentic document. Which it is, of course, maybe not a letter from Jengiz Khan himself. But from his office.

Love the circles and line work of the second piece and I don't think that the first piece is TOO cute- just different for you!! I really like it!!
Thanks for sharing!!

I agree with Elizabeth, though I'm certain that I'll love whatever you do to it!

I think it's a delightful piece. It's a nice representation of their paints, and it's eye catching!
