2Q Workshop

 Some of the 2Q members who listened & learned from Bryan Whitehead. 
 We used very old stencils and 'goop' to make a resist.
 Then lots of dipping in to Indigo dye.
Some of the stencil results.  Everyone had a great time - thank you Bryan for sharing your knowledge.

2 Days with Ro Brunh

 The last workshop was with Ro Brunh - what fun.
 This is my friend, Margaret's, piece - looks great.
My piece - smaller than others - lots more stitching to go and maybe some more ephemera.

Next Class - Quilt Encounter

 My second class was with Pam Holland - above area a couple of her pieces - such wonderful work.
This was the workshop I did - "The Woman" - have to finish it off & then I'll post a picture of my piece.  I loved the class & the free motion work - even though I was working on a loan machine.  Looking forward to finding an image so I can try the technique again.  Thank you, Pam

First Class - Quilt Encounter

 The Tentmakers of Cairo - talented men & such 'gentle'men.
 And this is how you do it - they are so fast.
 So - that's how much I got done - don't think I'll be hired on in the Tentmakers' Street.
There were so many glorious quilts - wonderful experience.
