Libs Elliott Quilt
Gotta give a huge shout out to Don Masse over at shinebritezamorano.com for this project idea.
I finally got this beauty hung up so I thought it deserved a new blog post. I always start off the school year with a school-wide collaborative project. I took the opportunity to talk about how we as a school are united and a team yet there is still variety amongst us. We talked about how unity and variety could be seen in each classroom and how this would happen with each quilt piece. Although 20+ students from each class used the same colors and shape (triangles), no two quilt-squares turned out exactly the same. This year, we studied Libs Elliott. She is a contemporary artist who uses a computer program to randomly generate designs that she then turns into quilts. Each student created a square that would be used on the quilt. I also switched one color each class so it made a nice transition through the rainbow.
