Fiber Junkies Pt 3 - Show and Tell

I've been meaning to share some of the pieces from our Show and Tell at our Fiber Junkies meeting. This is the last piece in  a series Denny has been working on. She's been wearing spider earrings throughout and said when she finished her last piece, the earrings would come off.
It's a wonderful piece and the back interesting as well
with the maze of webs.
Denny made these feathers out of fabric which were a great touch and meaningful to the theme of the piece. All the pieces in this series were based on interviews with people regarding life experiences;  each part of her quilts are essential to the whole.
Mary made this simple and very elegant quilt out of Japanese prints as a gift for family members....lucky family! 
And the back - as beautiful as the front.
Mary also shared her latest pieces using marbled fabric she had created and incorporated with beads. This one pulls at my heartstrings.
Marbled fabric has a lot of energy and hard to work with - quite a task to get a good balance between embellishment and fabric and I think Mary nailed it.
Til next time...
