Saturday play day at my house




Well people were coming and going all day...some came early and left early...some came late and stayed...thanks Ille for helping clean up!! Ille is after us again to finish our Patti Culea stargaze tome that we started in a class at Fiber on a whim in Atlanta...these ladies will be the top of the box that the tome goes into..only been working on this project off and on for a year and most are not nearly done!!! These ladies will go on the top of the box for the tome...well why do we need the arca aka box??? to keep all the pieces in silly!:> BYTW these are a series of patterns made by Patti Culea......

the top one is my ladies...the bottom two are illes....

I painted the background by first letting the ladies dry and soaking the fabric and putting setacolor and lumiere on ....it then ran like watercolor...I also added some fabric glitter to the ladies before they dried...
Not to be out done..Ille likes to paint so much she painted one for Kim too who was too busy appliqueing...
Ille painting and Sue getting ready to paint...

Some of sues fabulous work photographed on the back of one of the Callaham quilts...the magenta polka dots...

Sues book made from wallpaper and other things she had laying around...its soo charming...
the inside of her book
The outside of her minibook


Kim and her needle turned appliqued flowers...kim has been working on this a while because she usually really into something wilder like making crazy beaded purses....today she was laid back and tame...but its gonna be a gorgeous quilt one day....isnt it kim? kims blog
she also took some pics of play day...we should have take pics of each other with our identical cameras:>


These are pictures of Illes box that she has been working on too...she took a workshop from Kristi Steiner and Susan Edmonson up in the North Carolina mountains last September...I hope the pictures do it justice...its exquisite....and nope duh didnt take a pic of the box closed....its really THREE boxes that fit inside each other..think i will have to try one of these....when i have time...got to get off the computer and make my brother in law a bday quilt...he has ms and is really sick...so off to make a guy quilt....
