Student's Work

 or.... Why I love teaching so much. I get to meet and work with such lovely gals who are oh soo talented. I'm always so thankful when they take the time to email me pictures as I love to share what they do. At the NC symposium, I taught my layered naturescapes class which is a favorite to teach as everyone is doing something different and the ideas are flying. I come home so inspired. 
 Carolyn Riley was working on a very personal piece...A very loved family tree was dying and she wanted to capture it in a quilt. I showed pictures of the beginnings of this piece several weeks back and now it is finished. ...and it's wonderful. The interesting sky created using a fabric with lots of color movement, clouds on the horizon and the wonderful old tree as a focal point. Her use of silk screen in the foreground is the perfect touch.  Congratulations Carolyn....a job well done and know you'll enjoy many years with this lovely piece.
 Angelique Fahy created this wonderful piece in class but found the animals on a fabric at home and decided to add them. What a very clever idea. I also love the moon with the clouds moving in front of it, created with tulle. The layering she achieved is amazing
And a detail....2 amazing and very different pieces from 2 very talented ladies...and how lucky I am to have had them in class! Thanks Angelique and Carolyn for sharing!
