I am honored to be a member of fiber transformed, a group of remarkable Virginia textile and quilt artists. Each woman in this group has her own renowned style with a contemporary feel and amazing technical skills. Several of them are award winning quilt artists and have shown their work nationally as well as abroad. The current group consists of Mary Beth Bellah, Cynthia Harrison, Jill Jensen, Judy Loope, Peggy Printz, Diane Siebels, Susan Skalak, and me. We meet once a month to plan, chat, and share each others work. Currently we are working on a theme called starting point where each piece includes a black dot, period, or circle. Two of my pieces are shown here; spotted (above) and odd ball (below). I feel so privileged to be part of all this talent. I am learning and flourishing in their midst.
