Sue painted the leaf on a used dryer sheet before weaving a shape that frames it. The finished weaving has been sewed onto the background before the entire piece was quilted.

Sue Anne placed the silk flowers on a background of In Good Company's handdyed fabrics. The quilt has a yarn binding.
Susan's autumn piece uses the fall colors of leaves which were placed underneath the organza. She "fused" the two colors of organza with a textile tool so there were no raw edges.

Jamie experimented with different bleach applications on black fabric and incorporated the "new" fabric into this quilt. The top and bottom borders were drawn with a foam brush dipped in bleach.

Jamie pieced several marbled fabrics together with a commercial fabric to blend them all together. It was quilted with the seed stitch and embellished with beads.

Susan fashioned a stained glass window by melting many layers of felt and organza and polyester and layering it over the green organza. The frame is made by fusing fancy fabrics to a timtex base and couching black perle cotton over the raw edges. The center is suspended within the frame with beads.
Sue pieced several pieces of hand-dyed fabric with a batik and overlayed it with a piece of organza. After quilting with many different motifs, she melted away the organza. In some areas she took out the organza from the background and in others, she removed the inside of the motif.
Sue stitched this piece with several decorative threads. She used an old chiffon scarf over the leaf motif, stitched a double line of stitching and melted the outside and the inside, leaving a thin line of blue inside the leaf.
