PTA (Professional Textile Artists) met at the home of Dort Lee this past month...always an inspiring and fun time.
Barbara shared a work in progress which was beautiful and very colorful. She found the inspiration for this piece in the book series - Masters - Art Quilts. She was able to track down the artist and got permission to make it although the artist, very flattered said she didn't need permission... This doesn't look anything like the one in the book although the basic bones are there...(this is prettier IMHO)
Connie showed us a lovely piece mounted on a stretched canvas. I love to show the back finishing with the strip of fabric along the inside edge.....so clever.
Georgia who couldn't make the meeting sent some "tie" bags to show. I went a little coo-coo over them and decided I needed to make some for people I hold near and dear to my heart. I did bring one home to hopefully make a pattern only to find out Georgia has a pattern. This beautiful little bag uses 1 tie and you can see the front flap is the widest part of the tie.
