Great Results

As you can see it was a very productive class. We were all excited about the wonderful results our fellow class members were getting as we did "Twist and Shout" with silk chiffon and acid dyes.
Starting next week we will reprise the "Photos for Quilts" class.
June 1 is also "Meet the Teachers" at Ginger's Quilt Shop. I will be offering Free Motion Machine Doodling and Art Quilt Adventures. Come and see what is in store and join the fun.

Art Quilt

I finished the art quilt about my trip to Colorado as I drove along Interstate 70 across Utah. It was a great trip and this quilt is about the way the shapes and colors of the mountains changed as I traveled. I loved the bare trees across the fields and along the rivers. This quilt will remind me of the experience each time I look at it.

INew Computer

I got a new computer and am having a terrible time figuring out how to make things work.
I hope this is working. Who knows?
We will be discharging color on Wednesday. I am also working on some plans for changes to the format of class.
I'll let you know soon what I have in mind.

Back to class

Time to get back to class. We will be continuing with Silk Dyes.
I am adding two more techniques you can try. Splish and Splash and Layered Silk Painting.
I am also bringing the setting solution for the "Green Label" dye so if you did some of that last week
we will be able to set it on Wednesday.
Bring your silk and show us what you did last week and paint something else this week.
I know it has been crazy this session.
