Gayle took an abstract mini quilt class from Debra Gash (who is from Michigan) and she brought two of her pieces. I think they are quite interesting and cool.
This bottom one is laying on top of a painted and stamped collage piece Gayle is working on. Neat stuff isn't it.
I was busy this weekend doing hand work on my reverse applique peacock! I actually got a lot done on this piece! Really was nice having the time to sit and just work on it. And with all the light in Tommy's studio, nice to be able to see what I was sewing!
BUT...it's finished and I'm quite happy with it.
This is the back. I couched some fiber/threads before sewing the sides. You'll recognize the blue fabric is from my Carnival quilt I made. I had some leftover pieces so brought them for a starting point on the bag...the orange is from another quilt I made that I cut up. It's actually the back of the quilt. The front was ugly!
And this is a snap bag I made for my neighbor! She 'babysat' my husband while I was gone...
I'll remember this weekend for quite sometime!! So great meeting these wonderful ladies! Friendships I hope to have for the rest of my lifetime! Thank you each again for my wonderful get away! And Tommy, you are the best!!
