These silks were dyed first and then have shiva paintsticks added.
Last Thursday and Friday I was privileged to get to attend a workshop given by Betty Busby. We learned about non-woven materials and painting and dyeing with paintsticks, acrylics, ink-intense pencils, and fabric dye. Betty is an extremely good and generous teacher. We learned a lot and had lots of fun. Here are some pictures of the workshop.
Yesterday, My quilt “Trail of Tears receive the Viewers Choice Award at the Berea Quilt Extravaganza. I was really honored as there were so many beautiful quilts to choose from. I was genuinely surprised. My thanks to all who voted. The greatest aspect was not the award, but finding how my quilt touched people and evoked emotion. Here is a picture of the Berea Arts Council director and me in front of my quilt.
