Introduction of a New Art Quilter!!

Well, as a treat I got to spend one final day at Marcia's studio before she headed off for Nancy Crow's barn for a two week class. We had a full house today with Priscilla Kibbee and Barb Seils also there.

It was the official "coming out" for Priscilla Kibbee as a newly annointed art quilter!! Needless to say, I was blown away by her first foray into this genre of quilts! It looked totally different from what I saw two days ago. This top just blew me away!! Marcia's husband has declared it to be his already though.

Also Barb Seils had her piece very nearly done as well (but Marcia had taken hers down so I didn't get to see that one). I have taken liberties with Barb's pieces and made them into rectangles which may not be their final shape!!

I was busy starting another jacket as well as putting together some older blocks into a top (just what I need another top to machine quilt!!) but am pretty much at the bottom of the pile of things that need to be finished. You can see that I have barely started the back of the jacket but the flannel is at least all cut. I am using some hexagons that I did some time ago as the central theme of the jacket which is the middle of the back. I have some more of these hexagons which will make their appearance on the front and the sleeves.

Quilting on the Yellowstone 2 piece has commenced and it was a pleasure in my newly organized quilt space -- not as nice as Marcia's but a definite improvement over what I had been living with for the past few months.

How about putting a bead in the center of each one of those hexagons?
