The AQS Quilt 2018 project for May is Pictorial Quilts!
At the beginning of the year, you made a list of all the quilt making techniques you’d like to try in 2018 and put them in a jar. Then, you chose your own personal color of the year. You are ready!
If you missed last month’s project, check it out. We created Traditional quilts.
Our style for this month is Pictorial Quilts.
Pictorial quilts are defined as quilts made using any technique, with representation of a person, place, or thing.
Below is an example of a pictorial quilt showcasing an object.

Draw your technique from your jar, think about clever ways to play with your color of the year, and start creating.
Next week we will dive into techniques to play with, there are so many to try.
Give us a shout in the comments below letting us know your technique of choice or share with us on our Facebook group AQS Project Parade.
Let’s get started!
