I taught one of my favorite workshops to the Asheville Quilt Guild this week; it is such a fun workshop as you see so many different pieces and directions from students. It was a design workshop using a base fabric, creating nature type motifs for that layer, and painting a sheer layer to place on top using more design elements. You get a great feeling of depth to the piece. There is a lot more to it but this is the starting point.
This was Peggy's piece. She worked with squares and silk screen and smaller squares in the upper right corner to balance it out. She also screened lots of Hydrangeas onto the background which show through and are very effective.
I have to say, my one regret is not being able to photograph all of them - there were twice as many as you see here and all so unique. I promise my ladies if they send me a picture, I will put it on my blog. I am so proud of this wonderfully talented group and want some bragging rights for them. This workshop is a delight to teach, I come home on such a high after seeing the art people are able to create.
