It's Official!

This is a sample of the Vision Mini Quilt class I will be teaching through, beginning
March 7. The concept is a take-off from the "Vision Boards" you may have heard of....a cross between fantasy and subconscious plans for the future. The doll will be made separately, and
can be added to the mini quilt (16 x 20) permanently or by the use of a few bits of Velcro. The
mini quilt, serving as an extension for the doll which represents the maker of the art piece, is an
easy entry into the realm of art quilts. I will assist each student in expressing a personal vision.

My own doll has feathered arms for flying, and is adorned with many power objects. She is both
beautiful and "tribal", perfectly at home in an ethereal setting which contains birds and flowers.

Thank you for the compliments! The dark fabric around the three edges is hand dyed. I don't recommend that you play with Procyon dyes out in the cold...and never use the inside, but
hand dyes have a depth of color which cannot be achieved by other means.
May I suggest you play with inks/Shiva paint sticks/inks/sprays/and Lumieres on fabric?
