This last week I had the privilege of teaching at the Pamlico Quilter’s Guild in NC and at Thimble Pleasures in Chapel Hill. I loved discovering the town of Washington, NC right there on the sparkling river. We got right down to business and got messy with color. I was impressed with everyone’s courage to move past their comfort zones and create small abstract color studies. Good job ladies and send me those pictures!
Next it was on to Chapel Hill, at Thimble Pleasures, one of my fav fabric stores. Their collection of batiks is legendary. We worked on the Fused Applique and Paint pattern: Morning Glory and Angel’s Trumpets. Everyone was a little timid, but they dove into the painting part after a bit of prodding!
And some more:
We had fun and again I want final pictures!
On another note: I finished a red lace shawl for my friend and artist, Marina Bosetti, in exchange for a beautiful ceramic wall tile.
