Many of my beginner level classes are offered through the City of Long Beach (California) Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine. I am a member of SAQA, and the international group Fifteen Quilts.

Quiltart @ 15
I can now reveal my Quiltart @ 15 project which can also be seen in the context of the other entries at http://www.quiltart.com/15 . The challenge was to create a 15 inch square work for the Quiltart list's fifteenth birthday. My quilt is designed to highlight fifteen things I have learnt from belonging to Quiltart. Can you find them all on the quilt? I chose to use cotton, silk organza, machine embroidery and quilting, and TAP transfer. TAP is a product developed by Lesley Riley for image transfer. It can now be bought at http://www.ctpub.com/. Their blog entry for June 27, 2010 has a link to a 90 minute tutorial on using TAP. I wish that I had had access to it when I created the project!
