AEDM DAY 14 - Quilt Collage Class

Last night I went to a class with a wonderful textile artist, Amy Ropple, at Create Artisan Studio.

Amy makes amazing art quilts, heavily beaded and glowing with color.
These photos don't even do them justice - they are gorgeous in person!

This is a 6 week course and last night we talked about our designs.

Because of Amy's method of making art quilts, I decided to do a vase of flowers,
a design which could make maximum use of color and beading.

I need to work on this a bit more, but we are off to a very good start!

Happy Day 14 of AEDM!!

Thanks for visiting my blog and the kind words about my zentangle alpha. I'm in awe that you're going to make one of those beautiful beaded quilts. What a lot of work! Her samples are stunning - can't wait to see your project progress!

My heart skipped a beat when I saw the quilts and your design. You ARE off to a good start.

I wanted to explain something you said in your comment to me earlier today. What I made are NOT alcohol inks. That is a type of ink that is sold by both Ranger and Pinata. They are formulated to be used on metal and non-porous surfaces. What I made was ink that I added alcohol to. I guess technically you could call it alcohol ink, but it doesn't act OR react the same way as a true AI.
