In the Creative Space #2

The due date for these has slipped a little to November 4, (but I will be taking them over next week), the Gallery Hop and Reception is slated for 11/18 5-8 pm and the exhibit will hang until January 1 at Christ Christian Church 166 market St, Lexington KY 40507.... call for hours....859-492-5168. 

I am looking forward to seeing the photographers work hung with the interpretations. It will be fun to hear/see what they think of the interpretations.... we all made.

Here are the last 4.... these are still just little snippets of the whole thing... (whole is only 12 inches square...)

I will share each quilt and the inspiration photos and the photographer info and tell you about all the other little quilts that these were displayed with. 

I have missed working on these!!! 

More later- Beth

In the Creative Space Lately #1

I have been doing some stitching, but unable to share much... 

I finished up something in June... but can't remember what it was, that gave me some free time, so I decided to take on a Challenge Project.  

I belong to the Kentucky State Guild, (KHQS) and the sub group, Quilt Artists of Kentucky (QAK). The subgroup issued a challenge called "Quiltography", in conjunction with the Lexington Photography Club. The photography club lent us 8 photos to use as the inspiration. Loose rules.... The finished size is 12 inches by 12 inches, and use a "new to you" technique and the interpretation is open.  I am only showing a small part of each little quilt, because they won't be revealed until November... at a group showing at the Christ Church in Lexington KY, along side the inspiration photograph (I think). Here are 4 of the 8.

I've had lots of fun creating these and trying to capture enough of each photo... Not much in the way of new techniques for me...  on most of these, but I did try several new things.... and will explain (if needed) once we have the reveal and I will share the inspiration picture and each quilt after the reveal. These have been so much fun!!!
