Pointless Sister’s Pics

I know many of you are as Crazy for Fiber as I am so I am sure you will enjoy the photos of work shown today. Several people had their challenge quilts, but I am going to wait and show them all at one time in November. I am excited because I proposed having a Design Class with Marilyn Felber from Berkeley in the afternoons following our regular meeting and enough members want to do it so we will start next month.

Diane has this beautiful butterfly wing on her blog, but I thought you might like to see her with it. She did a wonderful job on the quilting.


Selma is one of our most prolific quilters. She almost always has something new. This is a quilt from Diane Hire’s Games Quilters Play.

Ruth brought this quilt that she made in a class with Marilyn Felber awhile ago. It is attic windows with fish and water as the background fabric. I think it is very effective use of that fish fabric!!

Marjorie wows us again with another vineyard scene. This time it is spring with a wonderful rendition of mustard. She dyed or painted all of the fabric for this.

Here is a closeup of the mustard. She painted all of the mustard flowers and leaves and then cut them out and fused them to the dye painted background.

Cathy calls this work in progress, Egg Planets!!! It is silk and I lover her sense of humor!!

On a personal note, I sighed a big sigh of relief when I got my entry off to the O’Hanlon Art Center and my quilts in the mail for the Marin show.

    Wow! Thanks for sharing! I did NOT expect Diane’s butterfly to be as big as it is!!!

    I too had NO IDEA the butterfly was so big. And now I am reminded I must do something with the pieces I did in a Diane Hire class when I was pregnanat with Benjamin. Hmmmm. There is potential. What did you show at the meeting, Gerrie?

    Oh, I’m so glad you showed Diane’s quilt “in context” because it’s much larger than I was picturing in my mind! Cool.

    I LOVE the “egg planets” one. That’s hilarious. I have a major Thing for clever word play and visual puns. 🙂
