New work and a new book

I recently finished this piece, "One More Day Up In the Canyon". It's about 15" x 18". I love the colors of earth, sky, and water, it seems to be a recurring theme in my work. I'm really happy with the way this one turned out.

Like quite a few others, I finally received my copy of Nancy Crow's new book. I have already spent hours looking at it. What an inspiration! If I could work faster, I might save up to take a workshop from her, but from everything I've been reading about her teaching technique, I don't think it would suit me. I am not being critical of her, I just know I wouldn't thrive under that level of stress. I told my husband we needed to buy about 60 acres with three barns on it, and he looked slightly alarmed until I told him I was only joking.

Sort of.

I had that same thought looking through the Nancy Crow book -- three barns would be ideal.

Your canyon quilt is wonderful. Are those pieced curves? I'm afraid to read Nancy Crow's book, who needs stress?

Jen, it's beautiful! Exquisite! Is it pieced or fused?
