The Great YoYo Garden "cut up" Challenge
Cathy's wall hanging quilt is " The Great YoYo Garden "cut-up" Challenge". " My thoughts during the year went from, are we crazy, to what a lot of fun, to we are fabulous." Cathy created a garden gate that leads you into a flurry of flowers. Interesting that most of us saw Flowers from the fabric we made. Cathy has moved out of our immediate area, but still drives to visit on our meeting days. We miss her, but know that she is closer to a quilt store then we are.. In the hot summer our YoYo group drives to Cathy's to swim in her pool, giggle, and munch on salad.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
