New art quilt in the works

Here's a peek at what I began today - I'm feeling such joy to be working with fibre again. I love that feeling when I know I'm on a roll - ideas are flowing and I'm just following along. I've taken some cloth I've dye painted and added silk roving, wools, angelina, chiffon, machine quilting and free form embroidery stitch. I want to create layers and texture and I have a sense that this way of combining methods and materials is really 'me'. I have some shibori dyed linen and other hand dyes of mine that I'm thinking I might add to the mix. And my Pfaff performed perfectly today - nice free motion quilting without a single problem - what a nice break that was!
