This is one of my favorite things to happen.... A student attends class and paints an original piece from there own photo, quilts it, binds it , and sends a pic to me so I get to brag about them. Thus is the case of Laurie Lyle who attended my last retreat in Temecula. Once Laurie had some basic instruction on the ink medium, it was time to get out of her way and away she went... working quietly, intensely studying her photo, and translating it into an ink painting. Before she left class, she had finished the painting and pieced a border in.... so all that was left was to quilt and bind. THANK YOU Laurie for your willingness to share your result. Quilting brings paintings to life and Laurie says she's happy with the result! Who wouldn't be?!!!!
