I held the first meeting at my house and chose the first theme - spring. I chose this theme for several reasons:
-the word has several meanings
-it will be spring when we have our first reveal later in September
-I thought it was a relatively easy topic for those who have not done this sort of work
I have made the following quilt and will call it "Spring Garden Festival" - we have a fabulous annual garden festival in our region every spring.
I will also be revealing a second art piece that I made for another textile group I belong to. I will call this "Spring Homecoming Ball". Although there is very little fabric on this one it is made with a front, batting and backing. I found the idea in a recent Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine.
I am really enjoying making these art quilts. I will blog about some of the others soon.
