Judith and Jean show off a few "Playful Pieces"
at the Silent Auction.
Each month Jean will add one pocket and six postage stamp blocks to her husband's ratty old
shirt, hoping to turn it into a beautiful example of funky piecing.
Judith may or may not decide to further embellish her apron because she likes it as it is. Please check out Jean's shirt each month to see the new additions to her repertoire! We hope to bring you many ideas you can personalize for your 2010 Challenge Quilt.
Playful Pieces--Pockets and Postage Stamps
Pockets are all around us; in clothing, kangaroos, pool tables, and the backs of airplane seats. You need to include one or more pockets in your challenge quilt. You can leave your pocket empty or fill it as you choose. Do not fill it with living things or goushy things. We're sure you can think of lots of kinds of pockets to grace your quilt.
Quilters' postage stamps are free for the cutting from the scraps of a quilt. These little squares are cut 1 1/2", and finish 1". You may embellish your tiny squares or not, as you choose. You need six (6) postage stamp squares in your quilt--or more, if you like.
So the requirements boil down to one or more pockets and six (6) postage stamp squares in a quilt that is no larger than 144" around the outside edge. There is no minimum size.
The rest is up to you. Choose your favorite technique, style, and color. Make your pocket, or cut one out of clothing. Please don't rip one out of the back or your airline seat or bother the kangaroos.
Have fun with pockets and postage stamps.
