We are an international group of fiber artist. Our aim is to create a body of work for exhibition purposes.
Annually we will make a minimum of 4 art quilts (portrait) in the size of 12"x24" (30x60 cm).

Within the circle
I know that for the whole year we have to make 4 quilts and yes, I have completed my 3rd one :-). No doubt I will end up with a lot more than 4 by the end of the year, but I am having fun with this theme.
For this quilt I started with a piece of black fabric which I had discharged with bleach. Most of the blacks discharged to a light brown/yellow color, but this one discharged to white. I quilted it with a red thread and added circles on it. The circles are made from commercial felt. After I stitched them to the background I added blanket stitch with a red thread of pearl cotton. Title is 'Within the Circle'.
