Whisper Challenge - part 1

I love a challenge.  Especially when it is a quilt challenge.  One that I participated in 2018 was called a "Whisper Challenge".  Do you remember the game you might have played when one person whispers something to the next person, and that person whispers what they think they heard to the next, and so on.  When the last person gets their whisper they say what they think out loud.  It is hilarious how turned around the original whisper becomes by the end of the line.

My small quilt group decided to do this whisper challenge, starting with a photo.  The starting person made a 12" x 12" quilt based on their photo.  Then they passed that quilt to the next person (but not the photo), who then made a 12" x 12" quilt based on the quilt they got.  This exchange happened throughout the group until everyone had a chance to make a 12" x 12" quilt based on what they got from the previous person.  The challenge ended in January 2019, and there was a big reveal and everyone got to see the pictures and all of the quilts that were made.

We had a huge potluck to celebrate and lots of laughing and oohing and aah-ing.  Here's a few pictures.  I have several posts to come about the quilts that I made.

Here's to all of the challenges you will undertake in your life.
