April 2009

Show & Tell at our first meeting.

Kathy shows her pieced art-quilt.

Jeanne had several quilts to show with various techniques used.

Below: Jane holds up a photo of her church quilt she is making for the Powell Centennial celebration.

Lili used a layering method to create her piece.

Marybeth is holding up a work in progress. The background fabric was painted by a special needs group, and she is turning the painted fabric into art.

If you have a photo you would like to make into a quilt, you can enlarge it to poster size and print it out using the following free program:

Scroll down to the 3 easy steps to: load your photo; size it; and print it.

It defaults to a large poster (4 pages across), so use the arrows and make it smaller, just 1 or 2 pages across. This is fun to play with. Use your printed image as your pattern for your art quilt.
