My challenge this month is to create using only pieces that I find in the student's scrap box.
I am using it as a means to show them that they don't have to spend a lot of money to create art. To use their imagination with what they have on hand.
I am looking forward to seeing what they create.
The pieces in the scrap pile change every week as they are remnants from the week's work
Lat week there were many orange and blue pieces so a random sorting gave me these pieces.
Which then became a miniature summery wave piece which could be a pillow, a pouch or a miniature patchwork landscape.
This week there was a random mix of summer colors.
I also have a box of remnants for batting. Pieces of fleece from blankets and sweatshirts, coat linings and polyester batting.
I found a polyester batting and lining piece for the under fabric of the patchwork piece.
I didn't even look and just pulled some strips out of the pile and began to stitch.
One can create art with whatever is on hand, you just need the techniques.
A summer rainbow art quilt.
I will be making a different piece each week - only from the scrap box.
