CTN 5!

The Art Quilts Maine Guild traveling exhibit, "Storybook Quilts" is on display at the Portland Public Library until February 24. Recently I was interviewed about the quilts by Community Television Network. You can view the short piece at this link: CTN5. Mine is the first interview, so it's just a few minutes in. From Portland the quilts will travel to Rockland and Skowhegan, so you may have other opportunities to view them, but if you have the chance, the Library's children's section is a wonderful venue.

New Class

 Linda and I are working on a new class series! It's called 'Picture This!', using applique to transform photos and images into fabric art. So much fun to see your photograph come to life in fabric! I started working on the sample this weekend--tracing the image, getting it enlarged, creating a pattern, then fusing fabrics to create the various elements. Tomorrow I hope to work on the background, then thread paint, layer, and quilt. Six sessions, which will hopefully allow time to complete the pieces, or at least get very very close! Here is my original photo, taken at the Animal Kingdom, and the two parrots, ready for a background.
