Painted Desert Spirits

Yesterday afternoon, I taught my Painted Desert Spirits' class at the local quilt store, Heart and Hands. This whole cloth quilt uses Shiva Paintstiks to create the spirit shapes. It is quilted and then embellished with bead work.

I always love it when my students take what they have learned and try something new. Lynn Miller told me that she was not creative. However, her work with the Shiva Paintstiks had me thinking otherwise. I love how she blended colors and how her desert spirits have an eerie, other-worldly appearance.
