Carol Weibe and Cracked Paper Quilts

Carol's Grand National Entry for 'Off the Wall'

Carol's second entry at the Grand National Quilt Show

On June 12Th, (yes, friends I am late again with my blogging!) the Oakville Stitchery Guild hosted Carol Weibe of Cracked Paper Quilts fame for a day long workshop at Joshua Creek Studio. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day that was not long enough for all the work we did.





Here Carol is demonstrating some new techniques to our members. ( Heather, Diane and Janet ) Carol will be doing a workshop with Maggie Grey's Workshop on the Web very soon.



This is my friend, Sandra's work, in progress. Sandra is a mixed media artist and is very talented!








This is Linda's little gem with some paint and collage applied. I've seen the finished work and I love it!




This is my masterpiece, a definite work in progress. Can you guess the theme? The newest and latest trend I read about. The owls are my own drawings. I have two cracks so far and I plan to re cut the shape to be more owl like before painting. I've added some dyed paper napkins for the next layer of colour to peek through since I took this photo.

I subscribe to WOW so will look out for Carol's piece. It looks an interesting technique. Your piece has me intrigued.

Thank you so much, Donna!

You were a fantastic group . . . I had more fun than anyone, and was thrilled with the quilts you all came up with. I can hardly wait to see a few finished ones.
