Even though I managed to attend two quilt group meetings last week....I suspect I left some of my brain/memory on our hallway floor as a result of my fainting episode because name recall (as I write this post) has stumped me.
I apologize in advance for not being able to attribute all of them to their superb pieces!
The members of our Mountain Art Quilt group are such treasures; positive attitudes, incredibly creative in so many directions, generous in their knowledge....what a treat to be included!
This piece took my breath away!!
Norma thoughtfully brought several pieces she created using mostly sheer fabrics. It was perfect given our focus at this meeting was a demo showing a technique of painted sheer fabric. Norma's past included being an interior decorator. She rescued sample books of sheers and said she spent many, many happy and relaxing hours stitching them together.
Norma also created this almost see through long narrow piece....also embellished with beads and trinkets.
DetailAnd here's a third one which included photo transfer and a leaf transfer method taught to Norma by Judy Simmons.
Our meeting was on Valentine's Day....what a perfect time to share these cuties.
The cardboard glue on stands really expands how they could be displayed. Very clever!!
Lynn has been working on a 'memory' piece featuring small jewelry treasures made by herself and family members. She even found her Brownie pin and added it to the piece. Her plan is to have other family members add their small treasures and hopefully it will be passed down for younger generations to enjoy. A true labor of love.
Jenny Perry presented a well organized and interesting demo of a technique she learned in an Esterita Austin workshop taken at Paducah last year.
She explained how to recreate an inspirational photo with paint on sheer fabric.
It's an interesting technique that has lots of applications as displayed here with Jenny's painted lily. In fairness to the instructor, rather than providing details, if this sounds intriguing you may want to seek out a class presented by Esterita.
