two gallon bag

For the 2012 challenge Artrageous decided on a two gallon bag bag challenge:
take a two gallon ziploc, fill it with whatever you want. It goes home with some else, and you get someone's bag to use to make a quilt. This quilt goes back to the person who filled the bag.

This was the bag I recieved:

in progress:

and is "OASIS" finished:

I reallY like this quilt! and am sad to see it deprat. It goes to Mary Miller, who unfortuantely was not present yesterday.

what do you make?

Rachel, at STITCHED IN COLOR had a thoughful entry about making.
In summary she states:
"we bring our diverse dreams and our distinct voices to our art, and we hope to enjoy a nuanced conversation with other makers - all other makers. Because, that conversation will transform us, change us. And growth is always welcome."
