The Lakeshore Fiber Arts group met last night, and you are sure to be in awe of what they have accomplished. It is certainly a talented group of women. In this first picture, Connie Korsky shows us her jacket that won first place in a recent show. (First place was a brand new sewing machine!)

Here is a close up of the winning jacket. Note the texture magic around the neckline and the handmade beads. This jacket is stunning.

This is a close up of one of the sleeves, more embellishments and handmade beads. Connie certainly put a lot of thought and work into this jacket and I can see why she won first place.

Laura Strait says she is a perfectionist and that this little quilt helped her to let go of some of that perfectionism and release her creative spirit. I love the free flowing lines and the bold colors. Laura says that she has registered for Art Prize, which is a huge art contest held in Grand Rapids this summer. You can see some of last year’s entries here. I'm anxious to see Laura's entry.

Barb Wright made this hand dyed jacket. She calls it Better Than Cook Whip, because she died the fabrics in a Cool Whip bowl. She has a wonderful medley of colors.

Sue Clark also shared her Skinny Quilt tablerunner. This zingy quilt has real eye-appeal.
Many thanks to all who shared their wonderful talents with us. Don't forget to stop back because I want to share Julia's demonstration on rusting fabrics.
I was at Spun Sugar Quilts the other day and she has a link to the Fat Quarter Shops where you can get the pattern for a Whimsy Kite Quilt. You can get the PDF file here

Until next time,
