Gail Bachorik from Milton, FL, was our workshop leader yesterday in making her Viva, Orchid! art quilt. Gail designed the pattern from a photo she took. We all worked from her pattern, most using the kit fabrics she had furnished.
Participants worked on fusing and placing their fabric pieces onto a background. Her technique was different than our usual method of fusing, so many had to re-think and got off to a slow start. We did not get to the quilting stage, but Gail demonstrated her method for quilting the piece after it is assembled.
Pine Belt Quilters meetings are at 9:30 AM the 3rd Wednesday of every month at University Baptist Church, 3200 W. Arlington Loop, Hattiesburg, MS. In addition, there are three activity group meetings per month.
