Santa's Secret by Ruby Koch
Santa’s Secret won 2nd place – pictorial, at the 2015 Arizona Quilters' Guild show. It was inspired by a class, Working with Inks, with Patt Blair. Santa was created with Tsukineko inks and fabric marks on pfd fabric, then cut out and adhered to the background, and thread painted with a variety of threads. Ruby Koch says that her goal was to achieve shading and dimension - we think she did a beautiful job!
