As an assignment, I chose to create a quilt depicting at least ten aspects of prehistoric human culture.  I focused on the Cro-magnon man and neanderthal man.  So, I cut five and a half inch squares and created this.  The squares with pictures are on muslin, and the drawings are done in dye sticks.  I just drew the picture, and heat set it.  The fabric inbetween is just some cotton fabric.  I used about one half yard each of the leafy fabric, and the muslin.  The backing is just some stuff I had lying around, and I machine quilted it.



Binding and backing.

I've never seen a caveman themed quilt.  I really like it.  The drawings are really cute.

That's a clever idea!  I love seeing crafts that explore a topic in a medium that is unusual or even contrary!  I'm curious about the depiction of the bandage and thermometer - prehistoric first aid?

Yup!  Cheesy  I know that technically they wouldn't have had bandaids or thermometers.  Purely symbolic. The dye sticks worked well and are permanent, but I had to stick to simplistic drawings that would be easily recognized.  Hence, a simple bandaid and thermometer.

That actually looks a lot like my husband's baby blanket! Only his is red for the most part and it has stuff kids would enjoy... but the format of the blanket is so similar! I'll have to show him  Cheesy

These are the dye sticks I used.  Pentel dye sticks, the 15 color set.  Cheap($3-4), and a decent variety of colors.  And, as far as I can tell, permanent and washable.

I love the leaf print you used and your theme is great! I think the mammoth is my favorite square.

When I first saw the title of the post I thought you were talking about the Ricky Timms style of quilting *blush*
