Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Sticks

Richard and I spent the weekend working at our annual church fair. Last night I worked in the Bingo game while Richard took care of cleaning the yard and taking out the trash. Today I helped served lunches while Richard (poor guy) chopped cabbage for the cold slaw. 

We ordered shredded cabbage with all the pretty colors--red cabbage and carrots--already shredded. Our order was so messed up: we got chopped, not shredded, cabbage and none of the color. So our day was longer and harder than normal, which is already difficult enough. Meaning we're exhausted. 

Nature Paint Brushes.  A fun outdoor art activity for kids. Easy enough for toddlers and preschoolers (EYFS). Summer process art.

And voila! I opened the computer and the idea of stick quilts came immediately. No arguments from this chick--sticks it is!

Stick quilts are much easier to find than you'd think. Let's start with campfire sticks and go from there, shall we?
