Exciting day - I finished my very first quilt project EVER! This is one of two quilts I made with a class of middle school students at daVinci Arts Middle School in Portland, Oregon and it will be auctioned off this Saturday. Miyong Noh worked with the students to do the shibori squares and then beached the color out to create the designs. Then the class named the quilts 'Diversity' and 'Simplicity' which inspired how I designed the layouts. I bought the shot cotton fabrics at Cool Cottons - and I have to give them a ton of credit for inspiring the color choices! The back was completely improvised: I wanted to leave spaces for the kids to sign and I also wanted to use up my scraps.
