When I envisioned this piece, I always thought it would be fun for the class artist to add to their quilt, fabric printed photos of their trip. So the blocks on the drawing are set up to allow that, but as a class sample or also as an option to those who wish.... I'm adding some drawings of traditional quilt blocks. Students can use these or ignore them. Their choice!
This was all done with markers.. It was just easier! A neutral colored outline of each block seemed to finish off block edges. For this.. a ruler and writing tip marker were helpful.
