quilt day

Tomorrow is the day that my students turn in quilt blocks.

They have the option of writing a paper, of course, since that's what you're supposed to do in college classes. But I also give them the option of making a quilt block (or other fabric art) inspired by the readings, authors, topics, characters, and themes of the class.

I went digging through my digital files, 'cause I have some photographs from years back.

and I found my first quilt block (four blocks, actually).

I called it "Maria's got a chainsaw"

(L* was in DC that quarter, and so, as you see, I didn't have the benefit of her eye for color)
