|me and my honey at my birthday dinner last night|
We shared our celebration with my friend Susan Else, who was in town teaching classes for the Tucson Quilt Guild. Sue and I have known each other since high school, and have shared so much of our lives. I was able to attend her lecture and take a class in Fabric Collage. Sue is a sculptor and uses fabric to build 3D figures and scenes, some of which are mechanized. Visit her web page-her work is so interesting! Here is a link to one piece that is special to me: hard times
Mr. Biblioblog and Sue went to college together and are dear friends on their own too:
We used multiple layers and cut away, then used the gift pieces from the cutting. Some people added in glitzy fabric, and some stayed in one colorway. We added cording or yarn or other embellishments near the end of the day.
I had a lot of fun making my sample and hope I can use this technique to add in some art to my sewing :-) Thanks to many of you for the birthday wishes on FB and email~you made my special day even nicer,
