NOFA Meeting October 18, 2014

All seven members of the Northern Ontario Fibre Artists met for our fall meeting on Saturday, October 18th .

Northern Ontario Fibre Artists
As usual, we had a good showing of projects, for our Show and Tell and we discussed a little business.

Here are some of our work in progress and finished projects.  The postcards are from kits that were exchanged during our summer retreat:

After a yummy pot luck lunch, we viewed a slide show of the Burlington Fibre Content Show and then headed back up for a fun round robin workshop.

Marnie had participated in a similar project with Kathy Wylie and friends and she led us through the various steps. 

Just getting started
We all started with the same size base of fabric and batting supplied by Marnie. The idea was to add layers in a limited time frame. We had 30 minutes to make our background from cotton scraps.

We then picked names and everyone worked on someone else's piece.

Our time limit was now 20 minutes per round and we could choose from the different piles of either tulle/organza/sheers, ribbons/wools/lace or shiny/glitzy/textured fabrics.

As the piece progressed you could pick from the ones not already on the piece.

Here is how Marnie's piece progressed:

Marnie and her background

Jane added ribbons, lace and wool

Marie added textured leaves  

And Terry added more leaves from the organza, tulle pile
And this is how everyone else's piece looked at the start and finish.


 Very fun project.

 This is what mine looks like completed!


Hope to see all the other finished pieces at our next meeting.

Happy Quilting
