Old Friends Revisited

17" x 9"

In 2003 I started painting cloth and using it to create art quilts. The piece above is one of the first pieces I made with my own painted fabric. It incorporates 3 pieces of cloth to symbolize the 3 lines in a haiku, and it is in my favorite colors --- blue and purple.

In 2005 Haiku was purchased by the Thomas Contemporary Quilt Collection, and I could not be more pleased to have a small work in that collection. Del Thomas (owner of the collection) has a blog, and every Sunday she features another piece from her collection. This week she is featuring Haiku, which caused me to revisit this piece, and happily I am still proud of it.
