Saturday I went to a "kai" which is a weaving group of sorts.  We did weaving, talking, sharing and just had a great time.
I wove this section of fabric on my loom.  (it is wonderful to have a portable loom)
And the bit at the top is something called 'sakiori' - a technique using thinly cut strips of fabric as weaving yarn. I used a batik and a floral. Here is a close up

The floral is one from a trip to Mexico; it wasn't quite sturdy enough for quilting - so this adds it to my cloth for garment making.  I will probably combine this cloth with some of the cloth from my previous post. I am thinking "shirt" at this moment.

I promise that I have not abandoned quilting.  Oh far from it.  I have plans and ideas brewing.  So stay tuned.

How fun to be able to go and join a group of people who love to do what you do...inspiring I'm sure.

Your work is beautiful! I'm not surprised one little bit either.

oh I love the idea of using fabric in weaving (beside in rugs) do you sew the strips together or just lay them in the shed

It's great to see you are still weaving Gene. I'm so behind on blogging and I've missed your posts. Looking forward to catching up over the next few days.

These large fabrics you are making are gorgeous! I can't wait to see what you do with them.
