For our February 2020 meeting, our new member, Tracy Visher, brought some wonderful Show & Tell. The first piece is "She's Just Blue by Nature". This is 3D and ultrasuede was used for the flowers.
This one is "The Ravens of Tatterwood" It was done with sun printing, painted interfacing, shibori, declorant, trapunto and shasiko.
This one is "Coastal Chaos". 3D on a hand painted background.
And this one is "Broken Strand, Broken Heart" about domestic violence.
Show and Tell continued with 3 pieces from Stephanie Bennett Strauss. These are titled, "It takes a Village", "Jois de vivre" and "Furata Hata Hivyo".
