On the Wall . . .

. . . and on the floor.

Anna's school's auction is approaching quickly and I must finish the project I promised. Above are fabric squares that each student in the class did. They used the glue resist method (that can be found in one of the previous Quilting Arts magazines). The white lines are where they put the blue glue gel and after it was dry, they painted them. Then I had to wash out all the glue.

I will be putting them in two different wall hangings. I think these are the settings I have decided on. If anything looks really off-balance, please let me know. I think I will have to put some small sashing in-between the squares as they seem a bit too busy right next to each other. I'm thinking primary colors.

Can you guess which one is Anna's? (Hint: look for a cat!)

These are great. With the square so bright, I think a neutral color between and for the binding would look better than a bright. Have you thought of black (makes everything pop) or a dark navy? I'd have to see those with it but pulling on the Amish idea and really showcasing the artwork. Just an idea.
