Quilt art

My daughter had a quilting project in art class. Actually, it was a painting project that used quilt blocks. They were to pick 4 quilt blocks and place them in the order the teacher wanted. The teacher also had rules about the colors and tints. They were supposed to pick 3 colors and 1 tint. She obviously hadn't quilted before. My daughter broke the rules anyways and made tints of 2 of the colors. I think she knew instinctively that the colors would blend too closely together. She is the real artist in the family. This project was done in December so she thought she would be able to give it to me for Christmas. It was chosen to be displayed in the main hallway and stayed at school. Friday she got in the the car after school and said "Merry Christmas!" and gave it to me. I love it and pinned it up this weekend in my quilting space. I know it's going to call to me to make it into a fabric quilt one day.

  1. That is totally amazing!!! I love it! I always loved art class but would have never dreamed of that! No wonder it was on display!! That would be an awesome quilt!!!!! Tell her she could make one of those for me any day!!!

  2. Thank you! It looks even better in person. She's an amazing artist.

  3. Hi Michelle,

    I love these blues - SO inspiring!

    Thanks for leaving your nice comment on my blog - funnily enough, I'm not a big fan of pink either - but I have it on hand because I know some people do. (lol) However, I like this end result.

    Looking forward to checking out your blog. Thanks for stopping by mine!


Thanks for commenting! I hope to have a reply to you shortly but if not it's because I'm busy quilting.
