Solder on


The Contemporary quilt group ladies have been having so much fun with lots of experimenting and sharing their quilt art  journals with each other.  We also enjoyed our “Show and Tell” where we displayed our pieces from last months Dyeing class.  Some of these pieces can be seen in the photos below.

Helen O’Hara, showed us how to fuse synthetic fabrics together to make beautiful no-sew art pieces.

We were also inspired by  Virginia O’Keeffe’s demo  to have a go at keeping an art journal, as she led us through the many options and techniques she uses. She had asked members to bring their own journals to show at the meeting and we were amazed at the response – a table full of treasures (who would have thought so many beautiful works were quietly being made at home!). Virginia’s own journals were works of art – lots of quirky and clever ideas for us to try out.
Remember for more information about the WAQA Contemporary group quilters you can visit WAQA webpage :-
They have many “how to’s pages and also lots of information about becoming a Contemporary group quilter.
All for now, I am off to search our garage for a soldering iron.
