Inspiration and Fun Stuff

The Asheville Quilt Guild met this morning, always lots of fun and great ideas. Connie Brown snapped a picture of her cute little 6 pound dog - Roxie whose fur was standing on end due to static. The photo was manipulated it in her photo editing program which resulted in this adorable mini quilt. The tiara, Connie assured us, is not part of Roxies daily wardrobe; it was added to the photo.
Rusting is all the rage and this fabric certainly illustrates the wonderful patterning one can get with this easy technique. This fabric shown by Anita Heady was actually made by her husband. He loves to rust fabric and has found many unusual things for rusting. I really love the grid and wonder what he used. It will be interesting to see how it works into an art quilt.
Our own talented member, Meg Manderson gave the program this morning and talked about her progression into art quilts. Meg has a wonderful technique for framing her work.
