The Sept. general meeting of the Mountain Art Quilters was so inspiring and frankly a bit of a blurr with so many great pieces to feast upon.  I hesitate to post some of these photos because I'm unable to properly attribute the makers to all of them.  If you dear reader can, please leave a comment so they are acknowledged.  

I PROMISE to take better notes the next time.....
Cheesecloth!*!*  Jenny Perry found a perfect way to achieve dimension of appearance of waves on this small landscape. 
  Diana Ramsay created this piece that she started in a Nancy Crow workshop.  The blocks are the same design, but altered by size.
 She quilted it in sections which made for a terrific complementary backing.
 New member Marene Parsons shared this nature inspired piece....such great color and movement!
 Kathie Briggs brought numerous pieces all featuring her trademark collage pieced backgrounds.
 This is one of two butterfly pieces Kathie mounted on a painted wood board.
 And another charming and colorful piece by Kathie.
 A quilt on a quilt was an inspired method to feature a printed photo.
 Simple outline quilting was all that was needed to highlight the scenery.
 What an awesome idea......(I think from Judy Smith).  This piece was dye painted by fitting the fabric into one of those canvas 'perfect pleaters' popular years ago.
Here's another delicious surface design created using a decolorant product and a needlepoint mesh.

Such a talented group! That cheesecloth is perfect for waves!! So clever.

So many interesting techniques! The quilt-as-you-go for each panel of the art quilt was a great way to manage her piece. Eye-popping show and tell.

They are all stunning. Kathie continues with some great pieces!!! I've always loved her pieces with trees or flora in them.
