quilt in progress, etc.

I've been working on a new quilt. I really am not supposed to talk about it, other than a bit of tease. Here is some detritus from cut-up Spoonflower fabric and black fabric scraps. No, the quilt is not all black and white, and not much white, either.

Here's the quilt rolled up, back side out. For a while I was going to use some gray fabrics on the front, but I changed my mind. So they went on the back.

We got a package from Japan not long ago! The stamps are so colorful. Our friend Yoshiko sent us some popular Japanese sweets. They didn't last long, especially with house guests!

Have I shown this sweet little top yet? It reverses to teal corduroy.

Next time I promise to show some photos of the visit from granddaughter etc. There are a lot, so perhaps I'm overwhelmed.

As it turns out, I can talk about this quilt after all. It's for an invitational juried exhibit called "Rituals," which will be showing at Quilt Festivals in Long Beach and Houston later this year. The participating group is called Dinner at Eight Fiber Artists. I will post more about it soon.
