New website
Please join me at my new website  http://gail.baar.us/   I will be adding new work there in the coming months. My blog will no longer be updated, but will still be a good way to see older quilts.

More experiments
Here is some of the fabric I have made recently, experimenting with flour paste as a resist, and also using soft scrub with bleach to disperse the dye. I have done it over several times, to get layers of interesting results. I am still working on how to use...

ColorForm 70
This is ColorForm 70, 60"H x 70"W. I finished this in March, when I was first starting to focus on bigger work. Now when I look back on it, only a couple of months later, I feel more comfortable in bigger sizes. I can figure out how to start, and am finding...

Desperate for Sunshine
It has been so nice out lately when the sun is out. Even though we have lots of snow left, I enjoy hearing it rushing down the storm sewers as it melts. When I go for a walk, there are big puddles of water to walk through on the sidewalks. I must have been ...

Not This One
Yesterday I was thrilled to find out one of my ColorForm quilts was accepted into Quilt National 2015. But not this one- that's OK, we are enjoying having it hang in our dining room. This is my second trip to QN, and I am looking forward to seeing all the w...

Totally new
I have been experimenting this summer, with some new techniques. In the first photo, I used paint and stamped using cardboard. The second photo shows paint applied to heavy canvas. I loved the texture of the fabric, and painted, stamped, and used various ob...

One more, one less
 ColorForm 28, 16"H x 22"W Here is one more from the ColorForm series, being offered this week for $150. I love the green at the bottom; the way the dye streaked gives an interesting texture to the shape. ColorForm 10 is spoken for, but there are 4 more to ...

Ready for Spring sale!
 ColorForm 10, 14.5" x 20.5" ColorForm 11, 19.5" x 23.5" Here in Chicago we have had a tough winter. Almost 70" of snow so far, 4 school snow days, rain, ice, 50 mph wind gusts, and potholes. So spring can't come soon enough! I am going to have a pre-spring...
