Endings and Beginnings – From The Mummy to The Mystery

The Progressive Part finished up our Movie Project. My movie was The Mummy (1932, Boris Karloff). Here is the quilt the group made.

I love every inch of this quilt, and you’ll see more details as I begin the quilting and embellishing. For now, here is a sample.

With every ending comes a new beginning, especially in quilting. Our next project is Abandoned Fabric. We each brought three bags containing a quarter yard of something we once loved but never used. The bags went on a table and we picked our poison. Here’s what I discovered when I opened my bags.

My assignment – make a quilt from this

I laughed, because the whole point of the project is to create a challenge. I think I’ve got a boat-load of challenge in this collection. I started auditioning fabric for what is now my mystery quilt. Here is one scrap that I thought I might include.

A scrap from another Progressive Party project

Here is another.

Auditioning fabric for this project may take a lo-o-o-ong time. I could see going through my entire stash before an idea hits, which might not be such a bad idea. The drawers could use a good sort-out and refold. Who knows what treasures I might unearth?

Luck and wisdom!

    Your challenge is crazy hard! But I like where you are going with it:). Good luck!

    Love your humorist post! Can’t wait to display my fabric again. Getting the urge to use my Western designed fabric for a large art piece from my new home.

    Sometimes it’s easier to use up someone else’s stash rather than your own. I like that cow.

    My fave is the top one.

    Is the top one yours? I’m confused how the movie project works. Was the top one a work in progress with attendees? I agree, I love every inch of it.

      The top picture is of the entire unquilted piece, which belongs to me although everyone worked on it. I started with one square, and everyone else added something – sometimes a square, sometimes a border. The detail picture is of the square of the eye of Ra.Lani ┬áLani Longshore https://lanilongshore.wordpress.com Death By Chenille (www.smashwords.com)When Chenille Is Not Enough (www.smashwords.com, Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com)Lani Longshore’s Blog (www.lanilongshore.wordpress.com) Broken Dishes Repertory Theatre (www.brokendishesrepertorytheatre.com)
