AQS Quilt Week

 I really enjoyed going to the show in Grand Rapids.
The quilts were gorgeous and the vendors good.
I swore I would not buy any more fabric well
that vow lasted all of   15 minutes. I did get some
lovely hand dyed fabrics.
 My class on Thursday -Stitched Paintings- with
Katie Pasquini Masopust was enjoyable. She is
such a nice person and a good teacher. The class
was lively and fast paced and I got a lot out of
it. We painted on 3 light weight canvas's that had
been coated with GAC-100 which makes a good surface.
We added some fabric on top of the painted surface
and than some more paint.Than we cut out 2 circles
and 1 rectangle switched them out and stitched
them, Than we sliced and switch twice more.
The resulted are the first 2 photos.
The 3rd photo is my scrapes stitched together.
This piece I will add some more to than cut it to
make some quilt greeting cards.
 Of course you cannot go to Michigan without bringing
home some fruit both fresh and jellied.
Also honey and maple syrup.It was a good trip.
