Our Fiber Junkies gathering this month was held at Gen's house. We all have different styles and preferred interests, inspiring each other to grow artistically.Denny (left) and Kate (right) have been making Bonnie Hunter mystery quilts. We all know that if 10 quilters made the same pattern, they'd all look different....this sure is a good example. Same exact pattern, different fabric/color choices!
Kate has been digging into her impressively large stash and has made another striking donation quilt. She loves to piece and is not only fast at that task...she's very accurate.....how nice she shares her talent with those in need.
Susan has been on a roll working on table runners. She has a knack for working with unusual color and pattern combinations. It's impressive to see what she can do working on this small scale.
Most of the group worked with gel plate printing designs. Here's one Susan made.
Denny did some overlay printing on previously altered fabric. She took this design from an old photo that had meaning to her, transferred it to a silk screen, and printed full and smaller sections of the motif using various colors of fabric paint.
Here's a shot of Susan's gel plate....just simple washers and string provided great designs.
Judy used a brick stencil to over-print a previously altered piece of cloth.
Another gel plate that featured a great design prior to printing.
I spent much of my time working with iron-on clear vinyl to make some temporary silk screens.
Gen....smiling as always....had a novel project. She got out her very large machine quilted sample book and in honor of upcoming Valentine's Day...she painted the hearts.
What a clever way to repurpose samples.....
