Homage to the Square Quilt

This small quilt was inspired by Josef Albee’s ‘Homage to the Square.’ It is machine pieced and quilted.  The finished quilt measures 18.5 in square.
 This is a photo of the back before I added the hanging sleeve and binding.
 This is a photo of a postcard of the painting "Homage to a Square."

Pink Cloud Seascape Stole

I started this stole in mid March and finished it last week.  It was knit using the pattern Seascape Stole by Kieran Foley. The yarn is Lana Gatto Silk Mohair.  It is wonderfully soft and light.

Art Masks

I've been playing around making "art" masks that are functional while unique.  Here are a few I've done so far.  I plan on entering at least one (maybe more as there does not appear to be a limit on entries) in this "Unmask Your Creativity" contest by Women of Color Quilters Network.

This one is "6 ft."
 "If you can read this you are too close.  Back off."
 This one is a formal one made of black linen with beaded ribbon.
 "2020 reset" appliqued over fabric that looks like newsprint.

More Face Masks

I've made a few more face masks.  A few of these went to friends but most of them went to the custodial workers at UAMS (via a friend who asked for them). All of these were made using the  Olson Mask pattern.
