FREE Show with Susie Monday Continues Through Today
Alex and Ricky Learn About the Sensory Alphabet and You Can Too

In this show, Susie explains that we humans all perceive the world differently through line, shape, texture, etc.. Those perceptions are the nine elements of the Sensory Alphabet. She asks Alex and Ricky to each draw a line on a piece of paper to compare the difference in the way each perceives a line. She then shares examples of fabric featuring the line that was photographed and manipulated and printed on an Inkjet printer.

Enjoy this show for FREE through Sunday, December 26, 2021.

Susie also has a handout explaining more about the Sensory Alphabet to share with you.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Brighter Than The Sun
"On the Day You Were Born: The Sun Flared" by Susie Monday

Susie says of On the Day You Were Born: The Sun Flared, "This piece, painted on my iPad with a simple child's app that uses simple shapes as "brushes," begged for size. Making an all-over pattern intensity of color and energy was the aim, but a bit later, while I was adding hand stitching and appliqué elements, a friend read aloud the children's book On the Day You Were Born by Debra Fraser. The gift of hearing it: a title and a series that interprets the books and its beautiful message of energy, unity, community and welcome."
