Playtime with Angelina Fibre and incorporating it into a small art-quilt was well received by this group of Central Coast ladies.
I taught the differences between hot-fix, standard, and metallic Angelina fibres and how they can be successfully become part of the quilt design.
Feed dogs were down and all machines were freewheeling, firstly on samples, to discover how easy it is to sketch with our needles and thread.
Then it was time to landscape the pieces together to create a fantasy piece or a more realistic landscape image.
This photograph shows my group being very happy with their progress and outcomes from the one day together. I left them feeling much more confident about their ability to continue playing with Angelina and fine tuning their art-quilting.
It was also a discovery day for me – I came home feeling very pleased with the progress made and very keen to continue my tutoring endeavours. I have realised how much a pleasure it is to teach quilting and textile art.
