    Naomi's Boat - Fractured Picture

    I challenged 7 other friends to try this, and even though they were willing. it was a bit like herding cats. In the end they are still speaking to me and are all pleased with the results. 48x36?

    Oh my! I love it. I don't understand how it was accomplished but I do still love the finish. Is it painted on fabric or pieced fabric?...I like your sense of humor, too!

    The original photo was enlarged to 48x36 and then cut into 8 strips. Each person interpreted their piece as they saw it. Makes for an interesting discussion.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    We agreed from the outset to donate the tapestry to our local Hospice for auction.

    It was a truly amazing idea for a project quilt made with friendly competition. Somebody will truly love this quilt.

    Wowzers ... the eight of you really excelled on this one!!!

    It's all so realistic .... amazing work.
    Did you exchange fabrics?
    In particular, I'm thinking the grey grass at the front.

    Would be interesting to see the actual photo you worked from.

    I'm still stunned from the detail and accuracy you all achieved.

    What a wonderful donation to Hospice .... an important part of our community.

    We only exchanged one fabric, a green background midway in each piece. All the rest were our own.

    Amazing how it all came together without total control in the fabrics.

    That grey grass still astounds me as as the overall coordination of the piece.

    Well they are shade of grey, backsides of fabrics and pale greens. A lot of choices there.

    thank you for explaining that--it is great and I love how each part is reflective of a different quilter.

    I really like what you have done with this project. It is stunning. Such a neat idea. So much to see in this lovely piece. One would never tire of looking at it. Hope it raises lots of money i n the auction.
