The prints are screen prints that I bought in Florida more years ago than I'd like to think about. It's good that they finally found a home. The quilt is about 40" by 48".

The link should take you to the site of Deborah Boschert for an online class in fabric collage.
I really liked her method of doing collage and am pleased with how mine turned out. It a method I will try again.

Now looking at it on the computer, I like it better than the main top. The grid seems to float on the background.

The last class I took at Portland's Art and Soul was the Safari Book taught by Barbara Rainey. What fun since my totem animal is an Elephant.
The black animals are T shirt transfers. The stamp I made. I used up an assortment of beads that have been sitting around here waiting for the right projects. Some are ones I made in class, some wooden, some glass.

Jill Berry taught the Sea Monster class at Portland's Art and Soul this fall. Her idea was for us to try as many different types of paper with as many media as time allowed. She put together these books are part of the kit-lots of work I know but very appreciated by me.
After the page is decorated, the top is cut around the sea monster, so it stands above the page and multiple ones show at once.

The first class I took this year was from Ingrid Dijkers and called Twirly Swirly for all the swirls we put in.
This one is a pocket made from a special piece of decorated paper. Four of us used to visit a friend in a retirement community and sometimes do projects with her. This time we did something to paper for 5 minutes then passed it to the next person. At the end we divided all 5 pieces up, so we each had some from everyone. The page is memories of Judy.
