A Visit with Marcia and Priscilla!!

It was great to see Priscilla again after a long hiatus -- between her move to southern NY and my absence I hadn't seen Priscilla and Marcia in a year or more.

These are just some of the cross-stitched and needlepointed tigers she has collected over the years and all will be included in a new quilt she is working on.  Priscilla LOVES tigers!!

Just one of the tigers..

Marcia shared this piece which I just LOVED!!  It is my colors of course!!  It isn't finished and we talked about how to quilt it for a bit.  Marcia does such a beautiful job and I am sure this quilt will be juried into many shows!!

I especially liked this area of the quilt because of the depth it conveyed.  Marcia laughed and commented that she had also and that this had led to one of the small pieces she did as part of an online class.

She pulled out a couple of the pieces she had done for this class next.

The class assignment was to use all the colors in the color wheel and to make all the backgrounds a different color.  You will recognize the motif from above.  I think we will see more of this motif in future quilts!

This was also a piece constructed as part of the class and was supposed to show motion which I think it very successfully did!!  Marcia (like me) likes to piece all her quilts.  I really liked the joyfullness of this piece and thought it would make a great kid's quilt.

Marcia also shared a couple of "in process" quilts of which this was one.  I also really liked this one and can't wait to see what she does with the quilting.  I think I want to call it "cornstalks and the moon".  This is quite a big piece!

I worked on a kimono jacket using some of my drapery fabrics and will post a picture as soon as I figure out what I really want to do for the front band as I am not happy with the fabric I chose...we shall see.

Happy to have word about Priscilla. I didn't know she had moved. Hope to see you at RAFA in July.
