Fabric Exhibition

Hand dyed /surface designed fabrics from all over the world. All are works of art even before they are used in an art quilt. The layers and depth are so delicious!! I could just eat them up!


QSDS is underway!!! Here is a sample of the artistic energy that is happening-- and this is only after one and a half days!!! 
The photos are of Rosalie Dace's class. Rosalie Dace is an art quilter from South Africa and the class is called "Earth, Wind and Fire." The pieces they are making are influenced by the four elements. Some of the artists in the class are feeling the heat in their creations, some are feeling breezy, some are very grounded and the rest are wet and wild!! Stay tuned for more QSDS goings on!

Nothing will make a person feel more helpless than not having a computer!! Especially right before the busiest time of my year! QSDS starts in three days and I am scrambling to get all of my computery things finished! But let us look on the bright side. I do have a shiny new computer now!! yea! But no photos this posting because I have not transferred my photos from the old computer yet. But I will have lots and lots of photos coming up in the following two weeks. Lots of art quilts and surface design and goofy acting artists (including myself). Don't get me wrong, we take our art very seriously, but most of us only get together once a year so we have to make it count!
