Bonnie Lattin-Hensely, Jane Haworth, and Karle deProsse (seen here with Trish Morris Plisse) showed off their completed journal covers. This is a group-wide project that will be explored in more depth come June.
Lynda Lasich brought in this crazy quilt carpet bag that the Artitude mini-group will be using as a basket for its contribution to the Pine Tree Guild. Lynda and friends used Roxanne Langan's 1920's Carpet Bag Pattern.
Trish used the same pattern but made her bag in denims. Nice!
New member, Bonnie Lattin-Hensely shared several of her quilts including this colorful rooster. She bought an outline pattern online and then interpreted it with her own fabric choices in a raw edge appliqué.
Bonnie used the grid method to create this portrait of Meeko. She decided to use purple for the shadows.
This is a pillow Bonnie made for her sister. It features beading to enhance the design.
Program: Art Quilt Design and Techniques
Kathy Madison shared the techniques and methods she uses when designing and creating her quilts. Kathy credits Annemieke Mein with being one of her inspirations.
Kathy used her own underwater photos when she created "Cayman Memories.”
"Arctic Tears" is a quilt from our April 2017 reveal. This quilt clearly tells the story of melting ice in the Arctic and creates tension between the melting ice, the vivid sun, and the whales in a changing climate.
|Considerations in designing "Arctic Tears" were a establishing a focal point, a vanishing point, a color palette, and a light source.
