A Fun Afternoon of Work..........


I've been asked to help create a wall hanging for the rehabilitation center at St. Mary's hospital, in Grand Junction. Kathy had a rough idea of what she wanted, but was unsure of how to start. I drew up a plan, and we met today to work on it. Jane graciously opened her studio, and amazing fabric stash to us. I wish I had 1/4 of the fabric she has!!! The three of us got to work, cutting and fusing the pieces. Check out those great rust dyed pieces Jane made.....and, the quilt by Rayna Gillman, who will be teaching at Jane's studio in April!

Kathy is busy cutting out the "stained glass" pieces. She is a joy to work with.....so excited about the whole process!

We've got a few pieces in place...........


See Jane...See Jane working on water......
and, here's where we ended for the day...........
We had a productive afternoon! I'll work on getting things stitched down, along with trees and flowers added. This is a fun project, and I'll be posting more pictures as it progresses. We're going to meet again next week to put the borders and finishing touches on it. Stay tuned..............

Lovely piece Nancy! I also love the pieces you did for Collage Mania.

Are you going to take Rayna's class? I've been wanting to take a class from her for years! I'd been trying to convince the AFF board that we should get her up here, but feel like it was falling on deaf ears. Maybe you can add your voice after you meet her?

You girls work fast! Sounds like you were "communicating" pretty well. I am working on Lorraine's Fish Lake piece. Would want to have a team like yours working with me. Have fun!
