Design Wall Monday, April 28, 2014

I'd like to share with you the Whisper Challenge project that I am working on, but it is a secret.  Just know that I'm working on something pretty crazy...  It is what is on my design wall right now.  

For those (including me until this challenge) who don't know what a Whisper Challenge is all about let me try to explain.  All the quilters who want to participate in the challenge are split into equal groups.  Next the quilters of each group are assigned a position.  The quilter in the first position in each group receives a photograph from the coordinator.  That quilter has to create a mini quilt that is an interpretation of the photograph.  That quilt along with the photograph goes back to the coordinator who removes the photograph and sends the completed mini quilt on to the second position quilter who will create a mini quilt that is an interpretation of the first quilters mini quilt.  And so it goes to the next quilter.  The whole idea is like the "telephone game" we used to play as kids growing up where the story changes as its told each time.  At the conclusion of the challenge the photograph and every mini quilt will be shared.  I'm sure there are lots of surprises ahead.  Oh and each quilter gets to keep the mini create they created.  The quilts size can range from 12" to 16" on a side and can be irregular too.  I happen to be the last of four in my group so I wonder how far from the photograph mine will end up...

38" x 47"
I have Kottontails to share with you.  I just finished the binding, sleeve, and adding all the buttons to give them eyes as well as dress up their chests a bit.  This very cute bunny quilt will be gracing my home next Easter.  It is a Buggy Barn design called Bunny Trail from the Stir Crazy book.  I'm hopeful the next Buggy Barn design I will be working on is Crazy as a Bird Dog.  Wait till you hear the "K" name my Sister came up with for it.

Take time to visit Judy's Patchwork Times to see many other great projects from quilters from all everywhere.  Have a great last week of April and first week of May!

sounds like a very interesting challenge, have never heard of it but so remember the telephone game and how things never turned out like they started.

I think the Whisper Challenge will be just that. "A Challenge". Sounds like fun, can't wait to hear more about it. Kottontails is another cutie.

I've never heard of a whisper challenge, but I can see why it gets that name.
Kottontails is very cute, Sandi!
