Stage 1 27.5" x38"

This is the first of many posts showing the series I have been working on. The name of the series is Stage which is taken from my greatest influence on my work which is professional bicycle racing. I am totally hooked on the sport. To watch these men climb a mountain on a bicyle in sometimes the worst weather is something to see. All the pieces in this series are made from my hand dyes except for some kona black. They are improvisationally pieced and free motion machine quilted.
This series will be hung in the local library as soon as I get them prepared for hanging. I have a couple more pieces to create also.

Well! I'm happy to add a comment to your fledgling blog. Love that African fabric piece -- your hand-dyes work so well with the other fabric.
