Actually this is a combined post...the years I was at Mizzou, a favorite hamburger/ beer joint was The Shack. It sat right across the street from campus and had quite a reputation for the best burgers (secret recipe) and fun atmosphere!
|Above insert is the Shack as I knew it!|
|Look closely....you might see my name there! Carving on the walls and tables was encouraged!|
Now, the connection to our workshop is with the collaborated work we did together..the three students (myself, my daughter, Andrea and another fun lady, Mary) and teacher Suzie! We learned three basic techniques: painting on fabric, air brush and air pen. After doing a couple of starts of our own (later info), we decided to do a collaboration where we all added to the quilt. We started with our airbrush technique and our theme for the day was "houses".
Then we all added more and more details..whatever we added to our own, we added to each others!
At this point, Andrea had painted all our doors with green paint...which triggered my memory of The Shack and the Green Door! So I pulled up the song for everyone...Susan, although younger than I, was the only one besides myself who knew it!

|Each time we changed color of the paint used for airbrush.|
|And at one point, Susan added Sphinxes..another object Andrea had in her first quilt.|
