This is Gina, who was our one woman entertainment committee in the Tsukineko inks class, she has a fantastic sense of humor and kept us laughing all day, and she’s not only funny, she’s very talented too with a winning quilt in the show.
In this class we always start the day by using a dry brush method; dipping the fantastix tool in the ink and working on white fabric through a series of exercises and then in the afternoon we progress to a completely different method working on one large image, using paint brushes and aloe vera gel on lightly colored hand dyed fabrics. The photos below are all from the afternoon session.
While in Southern California, I also had a wonderful reunion with my good friend Michele Pusateri, (that was not her car) who I was programs co-chair with at the Glendale Quilt guild 8 years ago before I moved to Chicago. We had so much to catch up on, both of us have had some big challenges to deal with over the last 4 years and it was fantastic to see her looking so good despite it all. Us women are strong!
