The final pictures from our RAFA (Rochester Area Fiber Artists) Show in Honeoye Falls. I have names of artists for most of these, but not all the names of the works themselves.

This is a continuation of the posting below - just breaking up some of the photos so you can enjoy a few "more" and not be overwhelmed.

I am part of the Rochester Area Fiber Artists quilt show in Honeoye Falls. I took a group of friends to see the show today - but was hindered by a very large bridal shower going on in the room. It boggles my mind as to why they thought having a 50+ person gathering with food (in hot chafing dishes) along the wall under the quilts was a good idea. We could not even get to see the show - in a space for which we paid to display our work. So, I am posting a few favorites over several posts - for my friends who didn't get to enjoy the show!
Marcia Birken - Early Mountain Spring
The beading on this is outstanding!

A member of our ArtCGirlz group, and very dear friend of mine, is about to enter chemo treatments this week. Our ArtCGirlz did a card shower for her one week - each of us (10 members) send a card a day for 5 days in late January. Yesterday we presented her with a quilt our group made for her to use during her treatments.

L'Autumno by Elaine Ross
This is the quilt I created for the "Nature Behind Bars" Challenge exhibit. The quilts will hang at the Genesee Valley Quilt Show in June and then possibly become a traveling exhibit to major quilt shows. In preparation, the quilts were judged by a professional judge and 4 prizes were award. I am THRILLED to have won "Best Interpretation of Theme".
The quilt is based on a photo I took at Longwood Gardens in October of 2011. I had the photo printed onto fabric by Julie Brandon - http://red-dogenterprises.com/. I then printed part of Vivaldi's Four Seasons music - the autumn movement, aptly named "LAutumno" onto sheer organza and layered that over the very top of the quilt.
I love Longwood Gardens at any season of the year - one of my "favoritest" places to visit. The quilt honors one of those seasons.

P.S. - she is the one who turned and posed (unbeknownst to her) at just the right time for me to take the picture!!!
