Leaving for home tomorrow after a lovely time teaching, dining, and being treated to a visit to the Boston MFA to see the Pilgrim Roy quilt exhibit.
First, I promised a few class pix. One of the exercises was to use a visual as a jumping-off point to create a piece that captured the feeling/essence without replicating the original. Rita picked this picture by Leger
and interpreted it like this.
Marla based her piece on a phrase she picked that said "up the walll."
There were lots more, but no room to show them all. Today, students were free to bring in non-art quilts they had started and wanted to turn into art quilts, or at least less tradtional looking pieces.
This block became something else more interesting.
And the rest of them will follow suit.
