 This page is black Micron - you can see the bleed through from the other side

This page is black Micron and blue Copic - the Copic bled through :(

I'm a few days behind. Oh well - I'll just enjoy the process!

Sunrise Series

Lately I have been enjoying working in series. My latest series is inspired by the sunrises over Nantasket Beach in Hull Massachusetts. The pieces are 5" square (8" with matting).  They are composed of fabric which I lay down improvisationally and secure with fusible products. I then layer with batting and muslin and quilt on a domestic (sit down) sewing machine. The quilting designs are inspired by Zentangle® patterns and I use several thread colors.  
They are available for  purchase click here.
