Challenge 5 - Through the Eyes of a Child

1.  Your inspiration for this week's challenge is children's art.  Feel free to use any of these examples for your inspiration from my favorite young artists who also happen to be my granddaughters.
If you know another young artist, that's OK, too. Be sure to include a picture of the art that inspired you.


2.  Every challenge piece must be a FINISHED project seen through from INCEPTION to COMPLETION during the challenge timeline. Each piece must stand alone as DONE to count toward prizes.

3.  Your project does not need to be a traditional quilt, but must meet at least one of these requirements:
  1. Include patchwork.
  2. Include appliqué.
  3. Have 3 layers stitched together by hand or machine.

4.  Please remember that these projects need to be created during the week of the challenge.

  1. A wonderful challenge! I'm so excited - I already found my inspiration and pulled the fabrics!
    Several years ago I made a baby quilt based on a piece of children's art. It was great fun!
    Thank you, Diane and Kim!

  2. I am really enjoying being a spe c tutor to these challenges. Life isn't going to allow me to join in this week, but I sure do look forward to a relaxing hour to look through the results on Sunday! It might just be what gets me through the week!!!
