Georgian Quilt Group

This is Ira Kashrashvilli-Lavrinenko from my quilt group in Georgia (former U.S.S.R.). Whenever and wherever I teach, I always stress that the work you create should come from within you. When I asked Ira while the woman looked so sad, she told that she was sad because she did not have a man. She has plans to create a Spanish man with a feather in his hat to accompany this quilt. It took the members of my Georgian group some time to come to realize that they needed to create things that reflected who they were. I am so proud of Ira. Not only is she creating quilts that reflect her but she is becoming more precise! My world is a better place with her in it.


  1. I like the way she manipulated value in her monochromatic color scheme, it's very well done. (I wish your pictures would enlarge more, I'd like to get a better look at the expression on both faces.) Thanks for sharing this!

  2. Hi Karen:
