Meeting of the Crones

     Last Monday, my fav group, studioQ...or as I like to call us...the Creative Crones...met and had our usual fun and inspirational time!  We have been examining the elements of art, especially how they relate to art quilters.  This month the element we discussed was value.  We have been taking turns researching the different values and coming up with an activity to match.  Kay had brought a lot of hand-dyed fabric that we chose from to do an activity with light, medium and dark values.  Here is a composite of what we did:

     And we had our usual show of work done since last time.  I am posting just a little bit of what I showed...the challenge for the blog of Art Quilters Around the World for this time is "Carnivale" but the reveal isn't for a few more days so I can't show the whole thing until next week.
