The second teacher who has inspired me is Jude Hill. Again there is a lot of hand sewing and whimsy. She also taught me how to weave fabric to use as a base. I took a lot of online classes from her (now these classes are online for free).
The last teacher I wanted to recognize is Luann Rimel. She goes to old cemeteries and takes pictures of the statues, which she later transfers to fabric. I made this piece in honor of my maternal ancestry. The old gentleman is my great great (or maybe another great) grandfather who was a tailor from Ireland. As Luanne recommended, I used old linens (in this case linen napkins) to mount the pictures on.
With my 3 teacher's help I was off to art quilting!
