Jim is a Canadian stamp collector and a stamp was the inspiration for the first piece in this series of photos, with the horse modified into a kicking posture.
Art quilts are part of his collection too.
Colour gradations are skilfully done in the Ribbon workshop that Jim has taught.
Each tiny fused rectangle represents a brush stroke.
Black, white and gray is a favourite colour combination.
The last photo, “Portal” is comprised of 7000 5/8” squares and some hand-dyed fabrics.
In the meeting, following Jim’s wonderful presentation, we were reminded that it is time to renew memberships and our year-end social is next month.
Here is a little heartwarmer about the first quilt.
The blocks made by Connie Jefferess were purchased at our annual auction. Our member who is making it into a quilt is also gathering more information about the blocks and Connie Jefferess. Connie Jefferess was a long standing member of the Canadian Embroiderers' Guild, London prior to her death earlier this year.
