Weekend Fun

Quilter started by Roseanne

I’ve been fairly good about posting inspiration and eye-candy almost everyday, but lately I’ve been busy having fun. In the midst of preparing to teach a class, I paused packing up supplies to spend a few hours with several members of the Alaska SAQA group who met with visiting SAQA board member and artist, Susan Else. Her work is mostly three-dimensional – she treats fabric as a medium to create mesmerizing and sometimes motorized sculptures. Check it Susan’s work and if you are really into art quilts, join SAQA. Their website is packed with information and inspiration.

The class was a ton of fun and each person tried free-motion quilting!!! Some were not sure they liked their piece after doing the quilting but as they added their girl or boy, they really enjoyed their art and the process.

Jump Rope Girl by Marjoria (it looks like her granddaughter) and Shawnalee created her daughters playing outside.

I definitely want to teach more – it is a lot of fun and I learn something from the students too.
