I just entered this 38" square mandala into SAQA's upcoming exhibition. Here's my kindergarten art skills at their finest! least it appears that way, but it really wasn't all that easy. The foundation was a nine patch of blacks/grays, then I basted a grid of white thread for guidelines to align my pieces, which helped immensely. I loved the look of the big stitches running through and decided to leave them in.

Finally I have a sewing station up and running. It's been a wild and hot summer, and we survived!
This piece ( 20"x20") is going to a friend who need a pick me up. I used Barbara Ramsey's circle technique and just added more filler pieces. The fall colors sing to me!
