class today

That's right, I have class today! I am late posting today. Got up early to take a class on dying and fabric manipulation. The photo above shows some melted fabric via the heat gun and fabric scarves to be unfolded. And let me tell you my hands are purple and blue!! I used gloves for the dying but couldn't wear them for the undoing of knots. And the paper towel with the pretty turquoise dye on it will be incorporated into an altered book page.
Our instructor made these quilts using a giant printer. The image is from the computer and printed on fabric.

And he quilted them on a Kenmore machine.

This is a huge dyed silk quilt made by one of his students . She quilted it on a long arm machine.

One of my bulletin boards.
Why do we call them bulletin boards?
I think the name should be changed, you know-updated.
There are no bulletins here....just fun stuff.
More tomorrow......Have a creative weekend.

Those quilts are simply amazing. I think the colored hands are definitely worth it -- can't wait to see what you create.

Love the Arthur undies on board.

The quilts? Well, call me old fashioned, but...

Actually, I liked them from an artistic stand point, especially the quilting on the second one, very creative.

I was just wondering though, if you turned the top quilt over, what would you see?

Marc, you wouldn't believe how many old ladies from the quilt guild looked on the other side of that quilt! And that is a photo of our class instructor.
Good to see you here.

That is so funny. I never thought about the other side of the quilt. I guess that comes from being a painter and not a quilter. Only thinking about the top side of the art. The quilts are interesting, to say the least. Thanks for sharing.
