It's been so long since I've posted on this blog, I had to reset the password!!

The little beauty above is approximately 8 1/2" x 11" and was the door prize at the quilt guild in Lafayette, Indiana last night.

They had a cancellation in their program and invited me to share the Altered Photo Artistry trunk show with their members. What a delightful group of quilters! I'm just sorry they didn't book the workshop, too. They would have loved it!

The door prize quiltie is the first I've cut along the outline of the petal. It took a bit more time to satin-stitch the edges, but the result was well worth two trips around the periphery.

Speaking of workshop quilts, the example above (detail below) is from Pat Iannone. She started this quilt last month in a workshop and sent the photo at the beginning of April.

Hand-stitched beads in the center really add to the texture. Great job Pat!

Sylvia Polk started this beautiful piece of persimmon leaves at the California Association of Machine Embroiders in Santa Maria March 12th. In spite of her busy schedule, Sylvia finished this and e-mailed a photo to me.

Her piece really emphasizes the importance of the outlining step to control the emphasis of the image.

Thanks for sharing, ladies!

Love the art pieces from the other ladies and that you went round the edge of the flower for yours.
