April, Week One

This is the first of April's weekly quilt. I'm using reverse applique and hand quilting/embroidery. Unlike the other quilts I've done, these quilts have a sort of story to tell. Of course, it's probably a story that only I'll be able to read, but that's okay.

I like doing the handwork, inspired by my study of Jeana Eve Klein's work at the Dayton Visual Arts Center. I'm working on a short review and will post the review and the photos next week. I've also contacted the artist, and she's agreed to an interview, so I'll try to get that done this week, too. The show is gone, but if you get a chance to see her work, don't miss it.

I'm using similar handwork to finish my March monthly quilts, and I'll post them in the next couple of days.

Of course, the circle study continues. The shibori in the background is my hand dyed fabric. I was afraid I might get tired of the circles, but I see more and more images and get more ideas each month. Since humans have been fascinated with circles for a long time, I don't think I'll wear out my fascination in a year.

I found your blog on Google Alerts, and I'm glad I did. I really like your quilts. I like the idea of one a week for a month with a specail theme. I think I'll try that--as soon as I get my Sisters in Cloth group challenges done!
