The Featured Artist for this summer is Audrey Sturtz, who will be a
7th grader this fall.. At Mrs. Spykerman's encouragement, Audrey
brought to school a pillow and quilt, two art related projects she has
been working on. Audrey learned to quilt from a book her grandmother
supplied. It took me two days to make. It took a day to
do the backing and a day just for the hand stitching around the border.
These have several of the elements of art; texture, color, shapes, and
Audrey and her mom made the pattern for the pillow from pieces of
lace. Sewing is a hobby for Audrey. She has previously sewn
a vest. Audrey plans to enter three quilts and the pillow at the
county fair in July.
