After all those snow days this winter we are still going to school here. One of Audrey's final Social Studies projects was to create a visual representation of the influence of religion on art in Eastern cultures. Much to my surprise she decided to make a quilt. She had a clear idea of what she wanted to make so I was just there for technical support. We started at Quilter's Way where Donna did a fabulous job helping us find fabrics that matched Audrey's vision.
I did the cutting but Audrey pieced together the top and quilted her background.
From there she used fusible to attach raw-edge applique motifs which she then quilted around. I love the effect of the gold thread and this blue/gold cross weave we found in my stash was the perfect choice for the binding!
The finished piece is stunning! I don't know the symbolism behind all her choices but I love her arrangement. I'll turn her into a quilter yet:-)
