In my on-line quilt group, another "co-hostess" and I put out this challenge: black, white, and one color for the quilt. It was to be 12", quilted and labeled. We do a lot of "swaps" where we make art pieces, and we take turns "hostessing". If anyone has an idea, she can post it, and those interested will sign up to participate. There are usually anywhere from 12 to 15 of us who participate, and it's WAY fun!
(Connecting Threads, and they have a quilter's social network called "Quit With Us).
Anyway, this is the original piece. I started with pulling my black and white fabrics, and pulled the orange hand-dyed fabric, and thought "evening sky"..and the black was the foreground. Then for the white fabric, I thought "white elephants". I liked the idea, and this piece so well, I kept it to do a "serious" piece with it one day, and that's how 'Secret of the White Elephants' was born.
Oh, I did do a different piece to swap.
