Art House Co-op 4×6 Exchange

4x6 project

I’m mailing my submission for the 4×6 Exchange today. I did two art quilt options using fabric print remnants and other scraps and this is the one (below, on the right) I’m sending in for the exchange. I can’t wait to see what I get in return.

I really love the thought behind the Art House Co-op and their collaborative projects. Having a creative deadline once in awhile encourages me to jump in and just MAKE. (I also participated in one of their Sketchbook Projects and you can see some posts about that here and here.) Plus, many of them are free. Browse their upcoming project list and sign up for one today!

Where I started – two pieces of fabric from a past project with hand painted lettering and silkscreened patterns. These were cut from a robe I did in a show a few years ago. Some more pictures of my 4×6 exchange piece in progress after the jump.

Arranging scraps from the rag bag into “art”. The eyes are from a piece I worked on you can see here.

The “fresh” text came from the plastic wrapper on a bag of oranges.
