Labor Day was the deadline for the most current 12'' quilt exchange. Everyone was on time. How fantastic is that? I am thrilled with my new acquisitions. Here they are.
This is MaryAnn's and I find it quite different that her normal, more nature-ish work. It screams
Elizabeth from down under did marvelous work with I think is all commercial fabric. It
calls to me, 'sticks and stones;?
If you enlarge this you can see the hundreds of tiny french knots. My fingers are killing me
just thinking to doing them. And Robbie did four of these pieces!
Gayle mixed it up with this very modern leaf, or at least that is what it seems like to me. I love the colors together.
Carol did this very clever contemporary black and white with a touch of color. She got hers done early.
Marybeth used her hand dyed fabrics in a very unique way. I love the had work she did on it.
These were mine. I headed two challenges and I was a member of them both so I reap the benefits of more 12'' quilts in my stash. I made a silk screen using masking tape and used black paint over the whole thing. I then took fabric paint and colored in the bright colors. The quilting was squares using both black and white thread.
