Show and tell at our FAA meetings is always inspiring......thank you ladies for allowing me to share your work on my blog.

This first piece was made by Kate Weston.....a pal who belongs to the PTA group I'm in. Kate is one of these rare quilters who makes both fantastic traditional quilts as well as art quilts. I love this new piece...the design and color elements are so well chosen, her quilting adds depth and helps the eye to travel around. Kate's quilts always display expert workmanship and attention to every detail.

Sally Fargo had us all in stitches when she unvieled her self-portrait piece. She incorporated numerous embellishments which made this fun quilt even more exciting to explore.

Here's her label.....and the inspiration for the quilt.

Don't you just love the clever and whimsical use of embellishments?

Here's a book cover.....a great way to personalize one's journals!

This piece was mostly made of batiks......besides the very well chosen fabric patterns and colors.....what made this quilt so unusual and striking was the use of horizontal piping between the rows.

Dolls are always such fun to make and examine.......again, it's the details that bring these items to life!
What a great use of wool sweaters!! Machine wash them in HOT, HOT, HOT water, dry on the hottest setting to create miniature felted sweaters that can be cut apart and repurposed as a doll or child's toy.
