NTAQ in September

NTAQ met at Kay's in September.  As always, I left the meeting inspired and excited.  Our members had been very busy since the last meeting and had a lot to show.

Bethany had been sun printing.  The top piece was done with cyanotype paint.  I've never tried it, but I may have to.  Bethany's leaf print was stunning:
She had also dyed yards and yards of fabric.  I love this gold/orange piece:
Michelle and Kay had to miss the August meeting.  So they showed off their Leger pieces, which the rest of us showed in August.  
Michelle's  featured woven fabric circles and rectangles.
Kay's was graphic and stunning 
You can see the other pieces, as well as the original inspiration painting, here.

Wendy showed some pieces from her abstract circle series:
And a new blue and gray quilt.  She used recycled shirting fabrics in this piece:
Kay has been doing a lot of arashi shibori.  She made this:
Our challenge this month was to make a quilt based on one of the paper collages we made during our July or August meetings.  Here are the pieces we came up with, with the collages (except for Kay's red piece) that inspired them.

As for my show and tell, well, I've been on vacation.  But I did manage to finish my challenge piece (bottom left above) and finish piecing the "ugh" quilt (see the story of the "ugh" quilt here.)  So I showed the "ugh" quilt and received some very useful feedback.  In fact, I'm going into the studio to do a bit of ripping and redesigning this morning.  I'll keep you posted.

I'm linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday, Confessions of a Fiber Addict and Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Friday.  Go see all the wonderful work there!
