As always with our gatherings, we have wonderful show and tell time, leaving us very inspired and eager to get back to our studios.
Mary B was our unofficial queen for the day as we haven't seen her in a while and were so happy to have her with us. Mary had donated some blocks she had won in a block of the month.
We assembled them, added borders, binding and quilting and then....gave it back to her finished. I think she was surprised.
Lynne showed us her latest piece using rusted fabric, all panels a little different. She gave it a cohesiveness by adding dye throughout.
It's quite wonderful and a beautiful effect.
Mary S brought 4 beautiful pieces. Mary makes her own felt as well as dyeing it and then if that wasn't enough, beads it like there's no tomorrow.
This piece was also sunprinted which I loved with the subtle areas that were resisted out using coins and sticky squares.
Janice made this quilt just for fun, this for me, not being a piecer looks mighty complicated.
Dort brought 2 of her beautiful fish quilts. I love the eyelash yarn couched on the surface to look like seaweed.
And Gen - master knitter brought a vest she made for her husband Ralph.
and these wonderful socks that belong in a museum. I'm also not a knitter so these amaze me and if I had a pair, don't think I could wear them, think I would want to have them framed!
Barbara showed us her newest work in progress - all silk. The black is a shantung with that great nubby texture. She plans to hand quilt it which in and of itself is an accomplishment but on black...wow!
Til next time.
