Tell me you cannot look at this quilt and hold back a cheerful feeling and a smile. If you can honestly do this, take your Prozac toot sweet or check into Electric Shock Therapy.
Last night at the Black Swamp Quilt Guild Meeting we had a Garage Sale and Pot Luck along with our meeting. (Why isn't there a pot luck with every guild meeting?) More about those details after the photos of Mary Lee's Art Quilts.
I've posted about Mary Lee before, so for those of you who don't know (or remember :)....this is Mary Lee.....Mary Lee....meet the IHAN blog clan.
The challenge was to use tulle and I tried to take a photo so you could see the tulle...I hope this one works and you can see it.
If the first one did not grab you....this one will for sure!!! Apparently it grabbed me so hard that I took at least 6 more photos and decided I did not "need" to share them all with you. I do get carried away, often!!!
The best part of Mary Lee's "work" is her attitude. She is a "who cares if you follow the rules" type of gal. We have a few of those free spirits in our guild.....I aim to become one of them.
"Just make it work and hack it off" was said -out loud- last night by an un-named free spirited quilter. Can I get a Whoooo Hooooo out there?
If only I had my video camera with me last night. The closest I could get to what "really" (a lie) happened last night after the "hack it off and make it work comment" is this youtube video. The colors were Orange and Brown and the gals in the group made the shapes of sewing machines and quilts as we all whooooped it up. You never know what kind of fun we will have at a guild meeting :)
