My Guild Challenge

As promised, here are a few pictures of my guild's challenge pieces. The bottom picture is of the entire wall of entries.

The top picture is my friend Kathleen's piece. (She is the skeleton on the left on my Day of the Dead Quilt) Kathleen has a collection of work that centers around antique textiles and window screen. Her self portrait is a drawing of her eye, but the rest of her face is a black and white fabric collage. There is an antique dresden plate to the right, and everything is sandwiched in between 2 pieces of screen and 'quilted'. Isn't it great? I used to tease her about her use of screen, saying she needed to wash it in rustoleum instead of orvus... of course the whole joke was off base anyway concidering the screen in fiberglass.
T next photo is my friend Lindy's. She is a traditional quilter, and she loves fall colors, leaves..hence.. leaf head.. That's about it. Gotta get dressed to go to Quilt and Textile show with my friend that makes me laugh all day.. Everyone have a good day to!

Both of your friend's pieces are much more creative than the simple Challenge that the magazine proposed! Pass my compliments along to them--very nice, indeed!
