Note From Marie Wirth: January:

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and you are all ready to get creative! Susan Madden will be sharing her expertise on  how to show flow and motion in art and landscape quilts from the design process to free motion quilting, from landscape forms to water, heat and wind. If you need ideas for a project you’re working on, bring it and we’ll look at ways to make it dynamic. 

We will also spend some time talking about the bird project so please bring whatever you are working on, bring your ideas, your questions and your inspiration. We would like to shoot for having them completed by March or April so jump in and get started!  They can be realistic or totally imaginary!

As always please bring any pieces that you would like to share with the group, done, in progress or whatever because we love to see what all these creative minds have been up to. if you have an idea or skill or talent you want to share with us please let me know.  

Hope to see you all Jan. 17 at 1pm.
