Periodic Table Project

I saw an interesting project posted on the blog Boing Boing
About a cool project called the “Periodic Table Printmaking Project.” In this project, a collection of 96 printmakers worked together and individually produced sections of the Periodic Table. You can read more about this HERE.
I wonder how quilters would tackle a project like this? That would be an interesting concept!

Workspace Challenge

I will join you in the Jazz up Your Workspace challenge. I recently painted my cubicle walls a cinnamon brown and have 2 of my primitive quilts hanging.

THANKS LAURA! These are GREAT!

Another "QUILT- UP YOUR WORKSPACE" entry!

A year ago, we painted my office and DH (my boss, J) let me choose my paint color, so I choose yellow, and I decided to hang my Diamond Bargello quilt, so that I could see it daily and add some brightness to my work day. Since then, everyone that enters my office sees it and commented on it, so now, I spread beautiful smile to many.

Baby Shower for Kim and Samantha Today

<—Aliyah, Kim and Krista

What a fun afternoon! Kim’s twin sister Krista had a shower for her today so she’d have some clothes and other “girly stuff” for Baby Samantha Jane. Samantha’s birthday is scheduled for Feb. 15th, 2008. We had a fun afternoon at the Family Buggy Restaurant in Farmington Hills, MI, a great lunch, super good cake and lots of laughs and talk. Here’s a few pictures…

Kimmie and both anxious Grandmas: Caron (me) and Karen.

How much candy and cake can one little boy eat? Plenty! Samantha’s big brother Jacob helped open presents. Here, Krista grabbed my camera and snapped a picture of him with a big gumball in his mouth. Jake is SO excited about “his baby!”

The First "QUILT- UP YOUR WORKSPACE" Entry!

Our first “QUILT- UP YOUR WORKSPACE” entry (and a beautifully appliqued piece, I might add) comes from one of my Dear Jane friends in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, Rosa Robichaud

“In November, I received a mini poppy quilt kit from my Secret Pal. Since Iwork for a Veteran’s Association, I decided to make it and hang it up, in my office. Monday, I think it was, I brought it into work and hung it up.

Thanks for sharing it with us, Rosa!

I posted The “QUILT-UP YOUR WORKSPACE” Challenge yesterday. Here are the directions:

Hang your little quilt at work and send me a picture! Either post it on YOUR blog and give me the link, or send the photo to me and I’ll post it on my blog for you (giving you credit, of course). Let’s spread a little color and add some smiles in the workplace.

Please forward the challenge to all your quilting friends, and get the fun going!

Jazz up Your Work Space With a Quilt!

OK, Workers of America,
it’s time to jazz up your work space with a little color. A little pizazz, a little quilty something.

I’ve been at my new job for a little over a month now, and the grey cubicle is a little too grey and drab for my tastes. Some of the people where I work have decorated their space, but mostly with photos of their kids, grandkids, pets, etc. You can see I have a pic of Jacob up in the corner, but I still needed to get into the decorating mode. What better way to add a splash of color than with a small Q U I L T ? The little Attic Windows quilt here in blue and black was made years ago. I put it up yesterday morning, and almost everyone who walks by says, “That’s a pretty poster!” I have to explain to them that it is a quilt. They get closer and look at it, and go, “HUMPH. So it is!”

I say it’s time we jazz up our workspaces out in the world with some hand-made quilts, so…

Here’s your chance to break up the winter cabin fever:

The “QUILT-UP YOUR WORKSPACE” Challenge

Hang your little quilt at work and send me a picture! Either post it on YOUR blog and give me the link, or send the photo to me and I’ll post it on my blog for you (giving you credit, of course). Let’s spread a little color and add some smiles in the workplace.

Another great idea would be to create a little Alzheimer quilt for the

Alzheimer Art Quilt Initiative. Hang it in your work space for a few weeks, send me a photo or put it on your blog (see above), but make sure that your fellow workers know it is going up for auction. Submit it to the Alzheimer Art Quilt Initiative and mail it in following Ami’s great directions (see the website). Then, when it is going up for auction, let everybody at work know so they can bid on it. You could even turn it into a competition at work to see if someone can be the highest bidder! (Aw shucks, toss the winner a candybar or offer to buy them lunch!)

Let’s warm up the workplace with quilts!
