New Fiber Art in Progress – Scraps to Something More

I’ve been busy in the studio. I started a new fiber art wall hanging. It all starts with this: pile of fabric scraps turns into a quilt. And, after two days of work on these scraps, I create the main elements. In this case it’s an elongated teardrop shape. I make them each as individual

Here are more photos of the Baptistry. The first was taken after I completed my early-afternoon work on it. I waited for the paint to dry and an hour later, I came back in and did more work. I don’t expect to be able to do any work on it today. We’re going to a
