Fabric Portraits Class!

Oh soooo much fun! Took a class on Saturday with Ruth Green, a wonderful instructor. Ruth & I, along with most of the students in the class, are members of an art quilt group called the Mavericks (http://www.mavericksart.com/). If you're local, meaning Phoenix & surrounding areas, you should check us out. It is the most inspiring group of women, and men, I have ever been around. Mavericks is part of the Arizona Quilters Guild (http://azquiltersguild.org/).
Anyway, here's (above) what I finished before leaving class . I never been so delighted. It was so much fun. Now I just have to add the stitching and work on a painted fabric background.
Look for updates later as I bought the threads I need yesterday.
This was based on a photo of my nephew who was killed 3 years ago in April, on his mother's birthday. This is a gift for her. I just hope it turns out.

Here are some photos of us working in class. Ruth Green is an awesome instructor.
This is her with a class sample. Thanks so much Ruth!
This is my 'creativity partner' Mary the dollmaker.
More students working away, or should I say 'playing away'.





My newest friend Gwen who is probably going to join Mavericks and maybe even join Mary & I on our sporadic 'play & create dates'.



Finally, it's me. I will keep you posted on how this turns out.
