April 23 is the deadline for finishing my quilt that will be included in an exhibit at the International Radiation Protection Association conference in Geneva, Switzerland in June.  Several of my friends are as busy as I am, trying to start, I mean FINISH our quilts.  The best motivation is a looming deadline, and this one is hanging heavily over my head.  But I'm making progress!

Here are a few photos of my WIP (work in progress) as we quilters call it.  I painted a background with Pebeo Setacolors, heat set it and then ironed on hundreds (thousands?) of die-cut freezer paper circles.  Tomorrow or the next day I will spray on additional layers of color, and those circles will serve as a resist, leaving the color beneath untouched.  I hope.  Oh, please...

I'll be posting updates soon!

 I got a stiff neck while ironing those circles on when the board was standing up, so I finally wised up and put it on a table.  Still, after a few hundred circles last night, I was tired with a capital T!
