My quilt is published in "Making Faces in Fabric" book

Detail: "Listen" by Veronica Hofman-Ortega
"Listen"

Fabric collage with cotton fabrics, free-motion quilted with cotton and polyester threads, cotton batting. 17" x 24"

Melissa Averinos' latest book, "Making Faces in Fabric," just came out and my quilt, "Listen," is on page 105!

I took a fabulous workshop with Melissa a couple years ago. Melissa won a Judge's Choice award for her quilt, "Face #1" at QuiltCon 2015 and she teaches workshops based on techniques used in this quilt. By way of teaching, she assembled the work of her workshop attendees for the Gallery section of the book.

Melissa is a talented artist and easy-going instructor. She is friendly, approachable and lots of fun in class. If you're interested in trying fabric collage, get her book and Make a Face!

If you were fortunate to see the "Face Jugs/Mugs and Quilts of Modern Day Appalachia" exhibit at the Scenic City Clay Arts this month, you may have seen my "Listen" quilt in person.
