Student Work - Radiant Suns Workshop

I have some photographs of student work from workshops here. If you would like to have your photo included, please email me a photo of your quilt, your name (it can be just your first name if you are shy), and the name of your quilt. And if you see your work and you would like you name on it, please let me know and I will add it. I hope to have this area grow so that new students can be inspired by other student's work!
