rip, rip, ripping challenge

the saint louis modern quilt guild is having a new challenge...
if we wanted to participate, we had to bring a yard of fabric to our last meeting and then we ripped it in half - saved half - and proceeded to pass the fabric around in a circle (our chairs were in a circle with all of us facing out).  when the person in charge said, "stop" we ripped the piece of fabric we now had in half, started passing and repeated until we each had five pieces of fabric.  clear as mud? :>  no, i know you get it ;)

here are the official rules from the stlmq:
"You must make something (quilt, table runner, market bag, etc) that is bigger then a placement
using 4 of the 5 fabrics that you received during the Ripping game.  You can add any additional fabrics that you choose, just make sure that each of the 4 fabrics are clearly represented somewhere in the project.  You may be asked to point them out, so be prepared.  The finished item must be brought to the August 13th meeting, in order for you to be eligible for any prizes.

Think creatively and have fun!"

i have the fabrics that i ended up with numbered above (i decided to use all 5 fabrics).

this really has been a challenge.  lots of ideas floating.  some frustration, but great challenge.  of course, i am not complaining about the fabrics i ended up with.
will keep you posted.

Challenge is right! I got the same #1 fabric as you do. Mine all seem to play well with each other but I'm completly stummped on what to make.

This is so perfect for you, Elizabeth! You are so creative and have such a good eye for how things need to go together. AND it is a challenge with a deadline, which is perfect for you, too.

I would be curled up in the fetal position, sobbing. YOU will rock this!

How fun! Sounds like something my guild would enjoy, too!
Love the group of fabrics, I can see why your mind is swimming with ideas :)
