GALLERIES > Digital Quilts (25)

Students looked at samples of textile design, such as the bold and sophisticated quilts created by the women from Gee's Bend, Alabama. Then they used Adobe Photoshop to make their own digital quilts. They cut up photographs and placed the pieces into a template. They used visual problem-solving skills to arrange the pieces into a balanced geometric composition. This assignment was adapted from educator Kris Fontes' photo quilt exercise.
