PTA - OCT. SHOW & TELL

Our PTA (Piecer's Talker's & Appliquer's) group had an outing this month to visit a couple of fiber exhibits. But, of course for this very productive group....show and tell was still on the agenda.


Gen (on the left) just finished this intricate machine pieced and machine quilted large quilts. She is an expert at just about every needle skill.....and can make her sewing machine stand up, walk across the room and take a bow.....


Linda Cantrell has switched gears from her charming & humorous 'people/story' quilts to conquering really great abstract art. We all are loving her new direction.


....and another.....

Georgia Bonesteel brought this piece, which is not only a part of our PTA 2010 Challenge - Sunrise/Sunset quilts......but also an example for Charlotte Warr Anderson's upcoming book which focuses on a really nifty way to machine quilt using reference marks.


Here's our darling Kate, who captured the essence of our challenge perfectly.

Barbara shared her challenge piece which still needs quilting......we all loved how she incorporated both abstract and some what realistic design into her work.

Our challenge quilts will be on display at the Biltmore Estate, in the foyer of the Deerpark Restaurant from Nov. 1, 2010 - Jan. 2, 2011.
