Photographic Abstraction – Island Door

We began by submitting photographs, and then held a vote to choose the picture for the challenge. These were the options:

And the winner is:

The rules: Make your own abstract interpretation of the chosen picture. The finished quilt must be 32″ wide x 42″ long (portrait orientation). Due at the January 2018 meeting.

 

 

Anything Goes Challenge

Each participant chooses something: a block, a hunk of fabric, a small failed project, a piece of fabric they’ve dyed or painted – anything goes. This item is placed in a paper bag with some symbol recognizable only to the owner (the owner is not revealed until the end of the rounds), and they are all thrown in a pile on the floor. Everyone picks a new bag, opens it, and pictures are taken for future reference. New “owner” does something to it – anything goes. The exchange continues for 4 or 5 times with the originator getting her bag back. Only rule – no one can be upset about what anyone else does during their turn!
