It comes down before the end of the month, so if you want to be a good friend, stop in and see it! The building is not open on weekends, but is open from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm M-F.
It is called The Art of Fiber II.
|Tracy's piece is at least 3 feet by 3 feet|
And Michael has a red piece that is so amazing. His talent is beyond anyone I know. He should be in huge galleries, maybe one day he will be.
And I am sure Tracy will be right there next to him!
My Iguana was done for a challenge by River City Guild. It was to take a block, change it up several ways and make something with it. This was like in 2007. The petroglyphs you see are made from a black solid piece, not a Kona though. I used a bleach pen to discharge the rock painting replicas. It is backed using the birthing method. I was surprised it turned so sharply and maintained its shape like it did.
I made the decision to do something besides a quilt, because everyone was doing quilts. I thought it would stand out. Well, it did. They HATED it!
My Hibiscus is an applique technique I learned in a Quilt University Class. It was totally different from anything I have ever did because it is worked from the back of the piece. It is a precise technique that gives excellent results without all the needle turning and wax paper cutting. You still need to mark off your pattern and enlarge it, but it makes a really nice piece.
