I have been sewing

I have just finished a new quilt which I am quite pleased with. I can't show the completed picture yet but here are a few steps along the way.

Lots of fabric strips - I worked in five different colour families and used a combination of silks, hand dyes, linen, velvet hand painted and anything else I could find from my stash. I stabilized the slippery ones before cutting them into strips.
For each colour family I created a needle felted piece to add to the texture - also cut into random strips

Start of the layout - each block is either 2in square or 4x2in

I will show you the finished quilt as soon as I can.
