I have a few pictures of quilts from our North Star Quilt Guild show this past Friday and Saturday. The first 2 are done by my friend Charlotte; I think I was attracted by the colors. I love the jelly fish that she designed too.
This one with the fish was also done by another friend, Anne, who also loves color. She did use a pattern, but she always adds her little personal touches like the dimensional dragonflies. In the fishing flies she used bits of eyelash yarns and at the bottom of the quilt you might notice a piece of silk as the river bottom.
I've had a sore throat and head cold for the last few days, so I didn't really help out at the show much. Of course I managed to drag myself in to buy some new fabrics! I purchased some variegated thread and more batiks from the Quilting Bee and More from Charlottetown. They also had these lovely silk batik scarves which I could not resist. One is for me and one is for a gift. I can't decide which one I can part with.
On Friday, I finished paper piecing my close up section of the mill. I am going to sandwich and quilt it next, and I plan to mount it on a larger canvas. I'm thinking of rolling some paint onto it after it's well quilted to bring out the textures, but I will have to experiment on another piece first and work up the nerve.
