the local quilt group

We had a fun day on the weekend playing with our soldering irons and fabric- melting and fusing and experimenting with mark-making to try out lots of ‘What If?’ questions.
Last week I showed the piece I was preparing:

It now needs lots of stitching!
Everyone had fun playing with a myriad of fabrics and felts:
