A Whisper Challenge

I can't remember if I shared this or not so I am sharing it now. My amazing art quilting group, Sub-Q, did a challenge where we divided up into two groups. Unbeknown to us, the first person was given the same photo and asked to translate it into a quilt and send to the next person on the list. The next person would translate what she thought the first person telling her by way of her quilt and then she would make a quilt and pass her quilt to the next person and so on. Well, much like the game of telephone we used to play as kids, our quilt didn't resemble much of what the first photo looked like. I wish I had the photo, but it was of a bird house in a garden setting. I did like making this quilt, I enjoyed the more subtle colors and the felt and hand work I indulged myself in while designing it. I used some of my pistachio trees berries  and twigs to help decorate the wool roving that became my crazy nest. I was depicting male birds trying to find the girl so they could nest! LOL I did crop this but my computer refuses to show the cropped version.
