Studio work day
World traveler Priscilla takes a break from her trips to Las Vegas, Sedona, Phoenix, and Chicago, before leaving for a sojurn to SouthEast Asia, and settles in for a session at the studio.
Marcia would like to "requisition" her turquoise necklace, recently acquired on her trip to the South West.
Art quilter Priscilla continues the construction of her newest piece. She had started assembling some of the sections while she was in Pheonix for classes at Quilting in the Desert.
She is auditioning border ideas, and will probably settle on a thin strip of black, then a black and white print, and then some Ricki Tims multi-color fabric. As usual, we like the pattern and color choices she has put together.
Beth brought along some newly dyed fabric pieces that she created using her "snow dyeing" technique. The fabric is covered with snow and various dyes are poured over it. The end results are these spectacular serendipitous, impressionistic combinations of colors. How wonderful and so much fun to see the results of the process. The dyeing diva triumphs again!
Beth's latest tracing of and planning for a "lily" quilt takes shape. The choosing of the fabric and the placement of it will follow. We bet this project ends up on a wall of Beth's beach house in North Carolina!
