This and the next quilt were collages which used the quilt as you go technique.
This is made up of pieces made from patterns as well as class pieces.
The next group is scenic inspired by pictures. I tried to indicate the size somewhat by how big they are in my blog. Many were quite small studies.
Loved this one!!
This used a VERY interesting technique I haven't seen before. The sky is "tiled". Small pieces were cut and collaged on top of another piece leaving a little space between each "tile". Very very interesting!!
Nice use of pieced blocks in the sky and of course love the birds.
These were small studies.
These next two were very nice abstracts.
This one was begun in a Jane Sassaman class and includes pieces of Hawaiian applique that was never completed!!
A very nice small color study using analogous colors and good use of different values.
This is an abstract interpretation of a picture of buoys. I didn't include all of her pieces but most of them. I of course love to representational work so it was a pleasure to see what someone else is doing. I have tried to be more abstract but my work always seems to become representational when I am doing free form studies. Cynthia Corbin was very influential as she told me to just stick with that if that is what I liked doing! I stopped obsessing on trying to get things to be more abstract.
There were quite a few other quilts but as usual, I was not in a position to get good pictures. As usual, I don't have names to go with the quits as I have enough trouble trying to get pics before the ladies bundle them up to take home!
I arrived later than usual as I had to drive my daughter home after her car was wrecked in about the busiest intersection in Wilmington. She is okay, the car not so much as a totally distracted driver crossed several lanes of traffic and smashed into the front of her car -- luckily the very front or she would have been hurt. She is just sore now and the other driver has 100% liability as well as a ticket for her effort so she has a rental and the car is in a collision shop!
