Whisper Challenge (Finally completed) Post 1

Well, after fourteen months of work the Loose Threads finally unveiled our Whisper Challenge this past Saturday.  Thank you to those of you who attended.  We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.  
The Whisper Challenge - Each person picks a photo or picture to use as their inspiration.  Then they make a quilt inspired by that photo.

This is my photo from our trip to Utah two years ago.

Then we make a quilt inspired by that picture and this is mine entitled "Utah Strata".  
 (I chose not to put titles on my quilts till after they were used for inspiration so they could not be influenced by the title.) 
We then pass our quilt on to the next person without the picture.  We are NOT to show our quilt to anyone in the group.  This was difficult for me because these are the artists I go to for help.  But we made it through.

The next person makes her quilt inspired by the one before (my quilt) then gives the owner back their quilt and passes theirs on to the next person.  
 And on it goes.

Who says you can't get wine from a rock!

It is so interesting how everything was interpreted.  We are all at different levels and have different quilting styles as you will see in the other posts.  Their are seven of us in Loose Thread so their are seven lines to follow.  I posted seven posts to cover all the pictures.  I hope you enjoy our over year long excursion into the art quilting world.

  1. I have to say that was one of the most pleasurable experiences ever in a quilt show. All of you did such interesting things and they were just beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing getting to see them again has been almost as much fun as being there.
