The requirements are simple: scale a quilt on graph paper so that the finished size is 64"x76" (includes a 2" border on all sides), and keep the design as a two-patch quilt (ie: only two different sized shapes/patches can be used).
This is the third year I have given out this project; and started a tradition of having the class vote on the "Best Design" once I've narrowed down the choices. Then, I make the quilt and display it at the school.
Last year, I invited my small group of blog-friends vote as well.
I will have the class vote on Friday, but will accept online votes until Sunday evening because I'll announce it on Monday. How exciting for the student to REALLY be the best design, not only from classmates (which normally turns into a popularity contest rather than truly the "best design"), but also from "real-life" quilters! :0)
SADLY, some of the quality really is getting lost in these pics. First, the flash is getting reflected off the colored pencil; Second, when I don't use the flash, the pics are too dark.
Design C. Using two pics, but still justice isn't being done. Blacks and purples take up the majority of the design, but fun BRIGHT colors creating some patterns. Maybe only math teachers notice the "special" symmetry here??? NOT reflective (like looking in a mirror). INSTEAD---it's 180 degrees rotational symmetry (which I DID NOT TEACH in class yet! Cool!!!) (ie: imagine rotating the paper one-half turn---the image repeats itself (with maybe just a few blocks different).)
THANKS FOR VOTING!!! Enjoy!
(I know I'm struggling choosing my favorite! I would be happy making any of these three).
