Using those patterns as a point of inspiration, they then transformed assorted art materials into their own quilt-inspired collages. Some students were rigorous about trying to recreate a specific pattern while others incorporated ideas from various sources into their work.

The class flew by, leaving everyone with great starts but few with finished artworks, serving as a reminder of how labor-intensive quilt-making can be.
