Appalachian Ohio Fiber Guild Contributes Wall Hanging

???????????????????????????????Our fiber guild completed its second group wall hanging and donated it to the French Art Colony in Gallipolis OH, to be sold at its Silent Auction scheduled for March 2.  Members of the guild each created a 9-inch block in their choice of medium, and a construction committee (Marlene Gruetter, Mary Payne and I) designed the setting to display the skills of our members.

???????????????????????????????We decided on a triptych–a set of three banners with curving sides, using grey satin, charcoal grey felt and turquoise accents. I provided the quilting to stabilize the banners, as well as sewing on the tabs to hang the panels from a black dowel rod with turned finials. I discovered how beautiful quilting on satin can be!  And that it was tricky to get all three panels lined up properly and hanging straight!

While I was still working on the quilting, I took the work-in-progress to the February guild meeting to give them an idea of what it would look like. One of the members commented that it reminded her of a gentleman in pinstripes with two lovely ladies on his arms!  I love it!
