Yesterday brought exciting news to two members of Fiberexplorations, Lisa and Deb. They entered the 2012 Quilting Arts Calendar Contest, whose theme was Are You Feeling Pet-ty? (We used the same theme and guidelines for our fall challenge, AKA "the pet challenge.")
The news: Both Lisa's and Deb's "pet portraits" were chosen as finalists in the contest! Way to go!
What are the odds that two people from our small group of 10 would both make it this far? There's some real talent in this group, and if I could remember to take my camera to the meetings, you'd see evidence of that talent right here! Deb and Lisa now have to mail in their actual 12" x 12" quilts, and the 13 winning quilts for the calendar will be announced on February 11th.
Until then, though, I have only photos of my own projects to share.
Soon, I promise, you'll see more of a variety here. In fact, my camera will record our first "play day" in early February, where we'll experiment with fabric painting, stamping, stenciling, screenprinting, etc., all in preparation for our next challenge. More details on that later!
