Quilting Arts Alliance

Yesterday we had our monthly Quilting Arts Alliance meeting at the Lyndon House in Athens, GA. We always have wonderful show-n-tell items, like Paula's lovely quilts...

...and her class project from a trip to the Chicago International Quilt Festival...

Mary Ann brought her beautiful book covers, purses, etc. which will be for sale at the downtown craft fair in Athens on Saturday (May 1)...

Mary Ann even used the technique we learned a few months ago for making fabric beads!

Those are two orange fabric beads being used as closures for this book cover. Aren't these colors lovely together?

At the same meeting yesterday I gave a program on Altering Fabrics with Paint and More.

We had two long counter tops full of paints, inks, markers, foils, and more.

It's a big art weekend in the Athens, GA area; Southworks Art Festival is May 1 & 2 in downtown Watkinsville (our member Nancy, at the back of this photo, has a photograph entered into this national jurried show and pieces in the OCAF artist's booth) and there's a craft fair downtown on the corner of Pulaski and W. Clayton Sts. Come on down for a fun weekend!
