September RAFA Meeting

The following pieces were done as part of a silk dyeing class in which many members participated.  I thought about it but decided not to.  The pieces were really pretty.  This is Joyce's.

This is Barb's piece from the class.

This is Caren's.

These next pieces were done by Beth K!  She is very active in the modern quilt group and her quilts are just stunning!!

This was done as part of a class Beth took at our quilt show.

Aren't these just beautiful!!

Started in a class with Jeanne Simpson.

Demaris is modeling gifts from Peru which her daughter recently visited.

Ann has become a big fan of crocheting and modeled a couple of her windowpane scarves.  She regaled us with a lot of wisdom regarding the wearing of this type of scarf.

These next two pieces will be patterns that will be offered at the GVQC's annual Autumn Fanfare.

Gorgeous hand dyed yarn from one of our members!

Our very very talented Marcia B made this adorable felted dog figure.  She taught herself just recently by looking at You Tube videos!!

I loved this simple quilt that Sarah did.  Like myself, she is trying to use up scraps of fabric.  This was a very simple but very effective use for sure!!!

After Sarah showed her quilt, I went out of order and showed 7 of the 11 quilts I have done since the last meeting!!  All in the spirit of what you can do with strips! (and squares).  I will probably cut up some of my more colorful and patterned fabric into large squares -- not strips.
