Cotton on Quilters February 2015 Show N Tell.

We started off our meeting with congratulating our Wanganui Members who were part of the Quilt Symposium Manawatu.
Sue, Carol, Judy, Donna, Frances and Helen.
This was Frances's entry in the Symposium Exhibition
Little Monsters. 

Another member, Donna also had an entry at Symposium.
A View From My Window.

Lidy attended a class with Mary Pal, called Cheescloth Landscape.
It involved water colour pastels, a painted background and sculptured cheesecloth.

 This is Betty's finished project.

Betty also went to a class where she painted a design on cotton material to cut up and use as embellishments. 

Helen was able to attend a Mary Pal Class called Cheesecloth Portraiture. This is her finished project using Mary's pattern.

And here Helen has used her own design and colours. Pretty awesome.
Helen said that it is not cheesecloth as we know it but Dianne Southey has been able to source it and has it in stock.
Lidy also attended a class printing leaves and cutting them away with a soldiering iron.

Bep with her finished item from a Donna Ward Class. I think it is part of a Pacifica Table runner.

Bep also attended a class with Sarah Fielke, called Colour Tour, all about using fabrics in your stash and evaluate them by tone and scale. A work in progress!

Hopefully we will see some more finished work from Symposium classes at the next months meeting!
