Our theme for October was "Curves."
Marcia: I brought 2 projects. The first one is from an NBQA "Block of the Month" from last year called "Twisted Sash." I added yo yo's to it, trying to match color and curve in the placement of the yo yo's.
Joan: I made more of my "stitched fabric," this time using curvy piecing. The overstitching blends the fabrics into a cohesive piece. I used the new fabric to create a pouch for my new i-pad. For the back of the pouch, I used the luscious velvety "alligator" pattern fabric I purchased at MOOD in NYC.
Melanie: My piece was inspired from "Quilted Symphony," by Gloria Loughman. The piece contains silks and my hand dyed cottons along with commercial batiks. My new favorite thing is incorporating a little silk in with the cottons.
