ART Quilt Challenges Monthly
Please don't be frightened by the title. This is a scheme to get us all to experiment with new ideas and techniques. Since there seems to be some interest in expanding horizons into 'artistic' type quilts a few of us thought it would be good to have monthly themes for using the other side of your brain. (You know the one you have a suspicion might be atrophying?)
Remember that these are experiments which means a lot of what you will try won't work but some will be very unexpectedly satisfying. :) Techniques are whatever....I personally use up a lot of Wonder Under and some of the ugliest fabrics imaginable just to see what happens. Size is whatever seems to be required by your idea but of course small is more manageable. (Also fits well on the bathroom wall or as a gift :)
Come and join us for feedback and ideas on how to accomplish things you might otherwise not tackle!
May's theme is 'The unknown world' -- splat some weird shaped blobs on a block and you have cells. What about coral shapes from deep undersea? Then embellish....... You get the idea.........
