Work in Progress

I am designing a series of different size art quilts using a sheer with burn out circles.  The materials include silk, cotton, sheers, paper, and one Batik.  12 x 14.5

This one has more silk, with a few more colors, one commercial cotton, and a bit of surface design and measures 16 x 16

Then, I was thinking about adding a word to the small quilts, and pinned it into place.
The two small quilts are reminding me of another quilt "Foot Traffic" because I used bright silks and text.  This is a portion of the quilt, which is part of my Doc Marten "Underfoot" series.
I think they sort of go together.  My eye is moving from each quilt to the other.  There are circles in the boot quilt, so there is movement and interest. A spark of an idea can come to life. Who knows what will become of this, but I am having fun putting these projects together.  Contemplation is always fun in art!  
Then I decided to make a larger one that is more like the two smaller ones, after removing the text.  Did I mention that using Mistyfuse on silk is divine!

A more close up view of the larger quilt, and it is partially quilted, and far from done.  My quilting has an organic design with vines, leaves and circles.
