Thanks to everyone who came out to the meeting last night. We had a wonderful speaker, Carole Angel from Sedona, Arizona.
Carole is an art quilter who shared many beautiful quilts that she created. Carole's specialty is painting white Kona fabric and using them for inspiration to create these wonderful quilts pictured.
Carole doesn't use a pattern, goes by photos from her adventures. She uses a variety of paints to create her quilting including fabric paints, oils, pastels, watercolors and Pepeo brand paint. Her technique includes painting the fabric first, using fusible on little pieces, some piecing and 100% cotton batting in multiple layers. She typically quilts in an echo pattern.
Huge thanks go out to Karen of Cosmic Quilting not only for hosting our meeting but setting up this wonderful speaker for our meeting! Carole also donated a significant amount of fabric to our philanthropy. Thanks Carole.
We had a few Show and Tells by our members.
