Technodunce [sorry, I borrowed this term from one of your blogs, and can't remember who gets the credit] Granny Fran attempted to add a link to a slide show of my photos here; instead please follow this link to my Webshots album and watch it as a slide show or click on each thumbnail to see the photos and captions.
Surprise, surprise! I tended to choose quilters who were working with photos printed on fabric, quilts that translated family photos and nature into fabric, and quilts that incorporated hexagons. I see these as the direction I am attempting to travel in my creative textile endeavors. I am pleased that viewing this show encouraged me to stretch and learn the techniques I need to create quilts that can be entered into juried shows, instead of making me feel overwhelmed and hopeless.

How does one create a prize winning quilt? One stitch at a time.
This quilt was pointed out to me by Debra as something similar to what she could see me doing
in the future. It was one large photo, printed in sections onto fabric, and assembled in such a way that it reads as a whole photo, then heavily quilted to enhance the scene. I'm now excited about translating the Colorado landscape, as photographed by me, into fabric.
