New Metals

These four little quilts are mounted on 8 x 10 painted canvases. They are for sale at The Commons Gallery in Eastport, Maine. Painting the canvas was quite a challenge - I must have painted 10 different layers before I got an acceptable look.

Metal I

All four quilts use paper, fabric, wool or ribbon edging and some kind of metal. This quilt uses copper mesh, beads and hand stitching with linen thread.
