I also took a class with my friend Patty. The class was called Uncensored Art--the naked truth about techniques with Sarah Ann Smith. Sarah was a very energetic and creative person who is busting with ideas and techniques! If you have a chance to take a class with Sarah I would recommend it! She's lots of fun!!
I learned lots but didn't finish a piece as there was just too much going on! These are two items I worked on. The first was painting fabric using freezer paper stencils.
I can think of a lot of things to do with this for Christmas time!
The other piece I played with are a fabric art post card. I was not particularly thrilled with my fabric choices but intend to add lots of bling and see what I can make of it... with this one we used paint with all kinds of textures to apply it.
The other really great thing about A Quilters Gathering is the SHOPPING!! They have LOTS of vendors, a great selection of fabrics with many that are not regularly available locally plus many new gadgets to try. Patty and I found one to try with our new Art Fiber group but it's a secret for now - more later :)
Also spent several hours manning our both for the quilt raffle - our drawing is on November 17th - if you're interested there's still time to take a chance to be the proud owner of this beautiful quilt!
