Barbara Houshmand’s piece Three x Three was accepted into “Fantastic Fibers” Fiber art show in Paducah, Kentucky. Barbara says, “This quilt is made of my hand dyed antique kimono silks, hand dyed vintage Italian silks and hand dyed cottons. I was inspired to make this quilt to maximize texture, color and character of each bit of cloth I used. The three bowls and three circles tend to bring order to a somewhat chaotic background.”
