Art quilt in progress

Pelka Wiltshire and I will be having a joint art show at the  Denman Island Summer Art Gallery from July 22 through August 2, 2016. The show is called "The Colour of Water".

I love english paper piecing and am using it in several pieces for the show. Here are a few close-ups of hand stitching some hexies to background fabric. Tomorrow I may post a pic of the entire piece in progress.
