A Little Out of the Ordinary!

So my friend (muse) Christine, was telling me about a challenge she was given. You have to make a small quilt out of three things from your kitchen! Wow! How fun would that be??? Immediately I started collecting stuff. My creative juices were on fire and this begged to be created even though I have so many other projects ahead of it. But you know how it is, you can't move forward until you get this our of the way!!
Anyway, my juices started flowing when I read the box from my tea bags. Tea bags?! Hmm. Interesting idea. So what if . . . I took the wrappings from the tea bags and put them to the side (I love iced tea!) Then cut the tags off of 3 of the tea bags. I had the inside lid from a coffee container and a plastic bag that contained fruits!
So what does one do with such an assortment. Well they make a quilt about Tea Bags" of course!!




So I drew the women on the backs of the tea bags. I mounted them to paper towels that I used to clean my brushes when painting (dry of course!) and then to the backing fabric!





The coffee pot was made from the lid and the handle was from some fabric I made. It was a scrap and I did'nt want it to go to waste! I love how whimsical. Not sure what to do with it as I am not a member of that group but the least I can do is post for all to see (who are interested of course!!)
