This is Christmas party week. Two down, two to go. If I didn’t have food allergies I’d be seriously overeating this week.
At the Art Quilt Group Christmas party last night, we all wrote sayings on a piece of paper and threw them in a basket. We chose out of the basket and the saying is the theme for the January challenge. Everyone has a different saying as the theme for her quilt. Here’s mine:
My initial idea is to do something with the concept of uniqueness. The saying means a person shouldn’t focus all her resources on one thing. My idea is to take a resource, whether it’s paint, dye, fabric, foil, etc., and use it in different ways so it isn’t focused on one thing. The piece will NOT include an egg shape or anything that could be interpreted as an egg. I figure that leaves a lot of creative wiggle room.
The longer the group stays together, the more complicated the challenges and the resulting art. We never think up the challenges ahead of time. The group brainstorms them at the meeting.
I look forward to seeing what everyone creates from this challenge.
