Our art quilt group is up and running. the first challenge--the crayon challenge. Our leader Wendy had a paper bag filled with crayons. The one I chose was pink--ugh! We were to use one other color. I made 2, since I wasn't happy with the first one, made on a woven background with a green tree and monster, bug on limb. the second one paired pink with blue.

The challenge required me to use color to create an atmosphere. I had a tiny scrap of the light fabric, and left over remnants of my favorite blue. I wove the roof, following directions by Jude Hill, and raw edge appliqued the flowers and the fish. I don't know if I was successful in creating a mood, but I like the piece.

I got in a mood to try and reduce and recycle my stash. I made 2 comforter quilts, using mostly blue fabrics. One included fabric photos of my 2 granddaughters. They helped me tie the comforter. When my husbands saw it, he wanted one, so I made a second one, and got my friend Jeri to quilt it.

I have 2 pictures of my in laws posing Bonnie and Clyde style, in a 1928 Model A. I am making art quilts based on the photos. I have finished the top that I call Aggie with her car (my Mother-in-law's name was Mary Agnes, but her friends all called her Aggie). I haven't stitched them down yet, and the male portrait only exists in my mind. I am posting the 2 photos that gave me inspiration.

The first 12 blocks are from the pattern I purchased.
The next 8 blocks are the ones that I designed. I will put them on the next post.
