This month, PTA - Professional Textile Artists, met at the home of another well known quilt instructor; Linda Cantrell.....known for her whimsical and beautifully executed applique quilts.
We all just loved her coasters.....Linda began her art career as a painter......many of those skills have translated into her work. The motifs in the jars of this fiber piece have been hand drawn using inks/paints.
I loved this basket trio......sorry the photo isn't better!Linda is actively involved in the Boston Terrier Rescue group.....and has quite a pack of Bostons of her own. Here's a photo display she created in a bathroom.
I don't know how she manages it....but the actions are truly generated from her own dogs.
She told us she put a plastic tray on the toilet seat and used a rubber band to attach the paper to the dog. Hilarious!!
Linda had several of these small pieces scattered about. They are mounted on a canvas frame, measuring about 4"x 9"....charming.
Show and tell was especially wonderful this month. Kate brought this clever quilt top.....what a great way to utilize scraps!!
