Cloth, Paper, Scissors Tea Party Challenge

This was my submission to Cloth, Paper, Scissors Mixed-Media Tea Party Challenge. The magazine issued a challenge to make a mixed-media piece in keeping with a tea party theme. They suggested that we use motifs or colors that evoke harvest, gratitude and celebrations. The posted the winners on the quilting arts magazine blog today. Mine was not one of them :0(

I enjoyed making this piece. It is a tea box made from a box that I took apart and made a pattern. Sewed strips of batik fabrics onto fast to fuse and then assembled a tea box. Inside is a liner bag like you receive in a real tea box. The tea bags have wooden tags that have words on each that were printed out in different fonts. A really fun challenge- can't wait to try the next one.
