Square Dance is quilted, finished, mounted and ready to be delivered to the show next weekend. I didn’t use the extra red squares I made but three of them found their way into 自乗 (Squared in Japanese–according to the Google Translator).
These are the black/red/white and the beige squares that I cut up and combined. The background and border are kimono fabric I bought 12-15 years ago (for what I don’t remember). Seemed to fit the look of the piece. What is interesting is that the characters
and the blocks seem to resemble each other.
That’s five pieces stared and finished in January! A record for me I think. The first three are have been named Calliope, Lights on the Midway, and Fun House Mirror for the Winter Carnival show that opens tonight at the Charlevoix Circle of Arts and the two above will hang in Squared and Squared Again at the Jordan River Art Center.
