Meet the Group: Christy

Christy joined us as a beginning quilter when we were doing our medallion series. I remember how excited she was to learn something new. She loved reproduction fabrics initially, and I have seen her explore and discover other styles to find what makes her fabric collection.

With an infectious smile and friendly personality, Christy is inspired by other people's creations in our group - I agree! - and picks up on tips and tricks. She is such a fast learner, and I love how she involves her children in her fabric play. 

I love that this group is so welcoming to all ages and skill levels. The one thing that unites all of us is our love of the feel of fabric and how much creating anything with it feeds our souls. 

July Meeting in Review

Fabric dying can be a new level of involvement in your quilts and open channels of creativity you might not have experimented with yet. A big thank you to Pamela for sharing her fabric dying journey with us this month, and to Jeanette for teaching the fabric dying class after.

(Pamela and Jeanette's favorite company to use is Dharma Dyes.)

Here are a few shots of their quilts using fabrics they have made, as well as the ladies having fun in class. My daughter and I tried to only do blues this time - a few greens slipped in on accident - and I can't wait to get my pieces back next month.

Speaking of next month, remember sign ups begin this Monday, July 27th. We are going to continue along the color journey and maybe get you to keep trying new things in your quilting rooms at home.
