Circle of Nine Class
I wanted to show the variety of blocks brought to the class given by Janet Houts. Some are pretty traditional. One of the gals found her Stack and Wack blocks in her closet.. this is just the beginning, wonder how it will turn out with the spacers...
Nancy found some blocks from a past project, these are all exciting to watch them change, and grow. Especially the UFO's. Others like me cut apart fabrics that had a variety of prints on a panel.
Everyone worked at their own pace, so these are just a few many of the variety of blocks brought by each lady.
Kathy is peaking over her quilt, and we were teasing how it also has legs.. Kathy started with scraps and pinwheels.. She decided to just use plain spaces, because she is using it for a table topper for the 4th. of July. Kathy is one of those delightful ladies that celebrates the holidays with decorative theme quilts
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.
