Quilt With Us

What was I thinking?  Last October I signed up for 2 pass arounds at our local Quilt Guild.  The idea is to have a small, itty, bitty, teenzy, weenzy, "fun", thing to do once a month and then pass it on to the next sucker, I mean quilter.  One is Crazy Ladies (should have been a red flag) and the other is Artsy Ladies.  Below is this months Crazy Ladies.  To start, we had to cut out a bust, (noticed I said 'A', so it's not          "the girls") and hand applique it to a background and pass it on.  Since this is the second month, I got this pass with the bust, and the hair....My month, Dec, I decided to give the faceless lady some jewelry for Christmas so I used wool and floss to make a 1" circle, appliqued it to a background and then used it to cover a button...  Attached it to a  cord that is just a strip of bias tape. It's definitely not Tiffany's.  I thought that would be much easier than trying to figure out how to do the eyes or mouth.  Yikes! I have 10 months left?  

PS:  The curly hair looks just like the owners hair, so kuto's to the previous passer.  BTW, we are allowed to do ANYTHING we want.... could be dangerous

Love, love, love the necklace!  Keep the pictures coming!  And when you get your completed quilts, pictures, please!

Love the necklace, too, as well as the hair (reminds me of a friend's hair when she just got out of bed).

Quite a creative endeavor, I don't think I'd ever join one though, when it comes to creativity such as this, I'm sooo out of it.

Pam: The project will go back to the original owner of the background/plank bust.  Some gals request it to look like them.  I asked them to do a Victorian lady as I DO NOT was to see a quilt of MY face on my wall later.  lol

I have done lots of different types of row and round robins, etc., but this is a new one on me.  I love it.  It will be very interesting to see what everyone gets back in the end.

Love your necklace you added to the gal. That's quite a creative pass around project.  Yes, keep posting as you work on them month by month!

Great pass around!!! That could get very interesting at the end! How do you decide who gets to keep it? The necklace was a good idea and looks great!
