NTAQ in August

The August meeting of NTAQ was held in my dining room.  
The program for the month was to create the illusion of transparency using opaque materials.  We made paper collages in grayscale.  It was a fun exercise, and we made some fabulous small studies.
Instead of an artist's challenge for September, the group decided to make a small quilt based on one of our collages.  Either in color or grayscale, creating the illusion of transparency.

Our challenge piece for August was based on a painting by Fernand Leger.
Fernand Leger, Woman with Cat, 1921
As always, our pieces showed a large range of interpretations.  Wendy's gray and yellow piece with circles (far right in the picture) was a standout.  Wonderful!
Wendy also showed a new quilt.  A single log cabin block of mammoth proportions.  Wow!

I'm linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday and Confessions of a Fiber Addict, Go see all the wonderful work there!

The collages are fun, may have to do some myself.

Isn't it fun how everyone is inspired by an art piece in a different way? Each collage is really wonderful.
Your post makes me long for my old Quilter's Play Group. We did similar activities. SEW interesting to see the different outcomes from your August challenge. Fantastic!!
