Quilt Group Challenge

Our monthly quilt/beading group decided to have a challenge. Everyone was given a bag and ask to put items in it for us to trade the next month. It was an "itty bitty" bag, but we were able to put quite a bit into the bag. The trade was done randomly so no one knew who got whose bag. We were instructed to take the contents of the bag, plus we could add items to make something for that person using the contents of her bag. Okay does that make sense?
Anyway I got my friend Bibi's bag and decided to use her items to make this crazy quilt. The middle flower is copied from an old postcard onto Jacquard's Silk for Ink Jet Printing.
The top picture is the back of the crazy quilt pillow/hanger and the second picture is the front.
We all had a lot of fun with this challenge and the results were amazing from each individual. Later I will post the other challenge results.
Thanks for looking. Comments are appreciated.

What a cool group project! Using someone elses stash was probably pretty inspiring. The thrill of finding neat and pretty things and maybe just a little out of your comfort zone.

The finished project is just beautiful. Would like to see some of the other's projects too!

Neat post!
xx, Carol
