As well as playing along with Anne, I've been working on a donation quilt for Ami Simms, The Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI). I called the piece 'Never Forgotten' and the great ladies over at Thr3fold Journal gave me permission to use Catherine Nicholls 'face pattern' in my donation quilt. Catherine's silhouette of a face just reminded me that even though we might not remember the face of ones we've lost, we will never forget them.
If you're so inclined, take a peak at some of the donation quilts that are up for bid on the AAQI site or make a small donation piece! It's for a great cause and a good way to practice a technique on a smaller quilt (this one is 9" x 11"). I'll put in the mail on Monday, as I want to take to the Weaver's meeting on Sat.
Tomorrow I'll post lesson 3 with Anne using sand and bird grit in our gel medium! What fun!!
Here are a few more of my fiber Valentine's that family and friends have received from me! They are slowly arriving!
