Last night was our 5th quilt collage class with Amy Ropple.
after arriving, everyone quickly spread out their collages and got to work.
My friend Barbara, who makes costumes for a local theater company as well as running a machine quilting business, decided to use this beautiful gown as the subject of her collage.
It's even more stunning in person and you can see the beautiful quilting in the background.
Another class member, Amy, is working on this coffee themed collage with a pieced background.
I love the graphic quality and the colors.
Barbara (we have 2 Barbaras and 2 Amys!), who fosters cats available for adoption,
chose to work on this collage of one of her babies!
It looks so sweet against the blue background.
I spent time beading the center of one of my poppies,
and our instructor, Amy, worked on one of her beaded vessels.
These classes are a lot of fun and there's a good amount of chatting and laughing
going on as we bead and stitch. Our last class is scheduled for the week after New Year's and by that time we should have our beading and embellishment finished and be ready for borders. Lots of work to do before then!!
Meanwhile, today I caught our two cats napping in the dining room with sunshine streaming through the windows - pure contentment. Just had to snap a photo!
Hope you've had a great week so far!!
