Featured Artist Melinda Bula

The Featured Artist at our quilt show this year was Melinda Bula. Last year she gave a program at one of our meetings and then gave us a workshop on her wonderful Fabulous Fusible Flower. It was a fun workshop, I'm still working on my flower. I really must get it done. Melinda has a web site and if you want to see more it is located here.

I really like the piece below created by Melinda. From a distance it looks like a painting. Here is a close up of one of her flowers. Lots of thread work. I hope you can see the detail on the picture below.
Not only does Melinda make quilts but she does clothing also. The coat below is one of her many garments. Grapes and vines, making there way all over the is a work of art.
Here is a close up of the leaves and grapes.
Below is a large star quilt that Melinda made. It is embellished with crystals. It's hard to see in this picture but it sparkles in the light.
You can see the crystals on this close up of Melinda's quilt.
