The program today was small fiber collages, inspired by Deborah Boschert's book, Art Quilt Collage: A Creative Journey in Fabric, Paint and Stitch. Fabulous book, by the way. You can order it here. Jay provided small canvases and we had been instructed to bring fabric scraps backed with fusible web, pearl cotton in various colors, needles and scissors. It was wonderful.
