Fellow Quilting Adventure Student's Quilt

Becky Freeman, one of my fellow students in Marcia Stein's class last March at Quilting Adventures, entered her quilt in the Kerrville Quilt Show.  I was privileged to attend this wonderfully diverse show last Saturday, when my husband and some friends of ours spent a Memorial Day weekend in Fredericksburg and Kerrville.  Becky's quilt depicts her husband on the Riverwalk in San Antonio.  She titled her quilt, fittingly, "On the Riverwalk."  This is another quilt in the Marcia Stein style of depicting people from the back!  Becky did a lovely job with the details she added to her quilt after our class and with her quilting.  I also admire the way she handled shadows on her husband's shirt and trousers.  Rather than using the fused tulle as I did, she used darker shades of fabric, it appears to me.  Or perhaps stitching lines.  Whatever method, it is effective.

Another Kerrville friend and fellow QA student, Sue Tune,  was in Philippa Naylor's class.  She, too, entered her small quilt in the Kerrville show.  Her small piece with its lovely trapunto is quite striking.

It was delightful to see the work of these fellow students this weekend in their guild's truly excellent quilt show!
