Ink-lique' Fun

I took a class today with Sherry Rogers-Harrison and learned her Ink-lique' technique. Fun! It's coloring for grownups! Here is Sherry (on the right) with her award winning quilt, Tribal Fusion. All the black is ink! It is stunning! Go visit her website for more inspiration:

Here is my class piece. We were lucky to be able to purchase the kit which contained a pre-quilted square. We spent the entire day coloring it in with jelly roll pens and identi-pens. Color selection was the hardest part. I used my current kitchen and bath colors. I finished coloring in the last 2 borders, but it still needs a little something.

Look at this gorgeousness made by Leslie, the quilt shop owner. Gotta love those hot fix crystals!

In other news...
I had a bunch of stuff to prepare before our guild meeting on Wednesday. I made my first ATC since March or April. This month's theme was "Creatures Great and Small." I figured a Halloween bat fit the bill. He needs crystal eyes!

Here's the pile of donation quilts that have finally been finished and removed from my house.

They all needed labels, so I prepared a pile of them.

I had to pick these late bloomers before the frost.

I've got less than a week to finish 2 quilts for our show next weekend. I'd better get back to my machine!
Have a fun, stitchy weekend!
