Beautiful work by Pam George

As a teacher, there is nothing more fulfilling than hearing from people who have taken one of your classes and go on to do great things with what they have learned. Pam George took my “Start with a Photo” class when I taught The Village Quilters in Loudon, Tenn., in July. She wrote me last night to tell me she used my method to make a quilt for her daughter’s birthday. Look at what she made!!!

She started with this photo of her daughter’s dog, taken at Look Rock in the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee:

Here you can see the piece before she added the smaller branches, twigs, and all the machine thread work and details on the icy branches:

If you read my blog regularly, you’ll remember Pam as the one who makes amazing needle-felted creatures. Here she is with her little chipmunk:

What a beautiful piece! Pam really took the techniques we talked about in class and made them her own. I can’t wait to see what she does next!
