April Meeting!

Pat S is one of our most prolific members and she has three of her ATC's (Artists Trading Cards) published in a new book by Patricia Bolton, publisher of Art Quilt Magazine (among others). Go to our "Gallery" to see the inside photo of her three cards. Good work Pat!!!

At Show & Tell she shared some of her latest work with us; the blue fern piece has a photo printed on fabric - twice! The sheer fabric is mounted about an inch in front of the back photo and give the work a very 3-D look. She had seen it in Quilting Arts and had to give it a try.

Another one of Pat's recent pieces; beads and wire on hand dyed China silk.

Another Show & Tell dazzler; Sandy O's denum jacket that she has embellished. Beautiful!

Or meeting was a review of some techniques we've done in the past for our newest members; torturing Tyvek, Shiva Paint Sticks on fabric, silk screening, and a few other things.

But one of the fun events involved Cathy A pulling out her hand-dyed fabrics that were left from her booth at the Chicago Quilt Show last month. They were gorgeous and turned into a "feeding frenzy". No one was surprised except Cathy (and don't you just lover her pink hair?)!
