The frame is finished...

... and the next one is due. Maybe just a one-fabric border. Will be dyeing more of this "snake" fabric upper left. It is an Indonesian print which needs some modification. The diamond is overpainted satin, the same stuff you see at the very top left. And so are the triangles lower left. The black/blue frame of the lower left square is from a lovely ikat piece that jude sent to me. You can see bits and pieces of the hiding dragon most everywhere. It is about 35x35" now. I want it to be 75x53. When I add another frame, I will have reached the width for a sleep quilt soon, but not the length. How to reach the length within the concept of a medallion quilt? I have a plan vague idea.

I absolutely love that snake fabric, makes me want to go play right now! This piece is quite a treasure, I love the idea of the elements, they are there for sure and how appropriate!

t's a bit Cretan, I think because the central panel seems to be an island, and also because it suggests mosaic.
