Fiber Frenzy Report

Last Friday was the meeting day for our Fiber Frenzy Group.  We had a wonderful 2-1/2 hours together.  As a matter of fact, we all looked at our watches and realized that we had over-shot our ending time by 30 minutes!!!!

The first thing that we did was present our “Leaf” challenge projects.  I did not prepare a challenge piece this month, but had a wonderful time seeing what everybody else came up with.

 

Mary Ann was first to share and brought out this delightful piece…..  DSC00401 Anita showed this piece that was made by stamping the fabric with a leaf that had leftover paint from a deconstructed screen printing project…..

Nancy prepared this thread painted fern leaf….cant you just see it unfurling…..DSC00403

Jodie wasn’t there but sent in her fused leaf collage……DSC00404

Shirley (who never makes anything small) brought in this delightful applique.  She is debating about adding more to it and turning it into a queen size quilt.  I love the fabrics and colors….makes me think of Autumn and cooler weather!!!!DSC00399

Finally, Madeline blew us away with her leaf…..

DSC00404 She said that the piece used a smorgasbord of techniques ranging from paints, paintsticks, thread and anything else that she could think of!!!!

It is such fun to see what everyone comes up with!!!!!

Such a creative group. They would probably have lots of ideas for your bamboo quilt too, I would think.
