Quilter's Soup challenge

A new challenge at our quilt guild this year is, "Quilter's Soup!"

We were given the 'recipe' and a canning jar at our first guild meeting. The idea was to go home and decide on your ingredients - what fabrics you wanted to include for someone else to use to make a project for you. Size requirements were included and the option of the receiving chef/quilter to add one fabric to the mix - like broth!

It took me a long time to decide what I wanted to put in my jar. Once I thought about a rainbow I couldn't let go of the idea, so rainbow soup for me! I thought of it as 'unicorn soup' (but not soup MADE of unicorns, rather a soup unicorns would eat;) )

Then we took our full jars back to the next quilt meeting; we wrote our names on tape on the underside of the lid so no one would know who's jar they got until they opened it later. The jars were put in a large bag and we actually picked by taking one not by looking at the fabrics!

The jar I picked definitely has intentional fabrics inside! I think the quilter included the 'broth' too so I will try hard not to add anything else to this mix. We have a couple of months to complete the project. Needless to say I have a few ideas already. I'll report back on this project in February. . .

What a fun challenge. I'd never heard of this one before - love the jar. :)

What a great idea for a swap / challenge!
The first year of our guild, we had a challenge where we put a piece of fabric in a box, and a suggestion of a theme. The person receiving it started the project - and then at the end of the month, passed it on to another person. At season's end, you got your box back, with a finished table topper / wall-hanging / table runner. I didn't participate (I was too much of a control freak then!) - the results were mixed (most of us didn't know anyone else, and it was really hard to imagine what a total stranger would like - and we didn't do anything like that again!). Your project sounds like it would be easier to make something that the recipient would like - you've already got a jar full of their favourite fabrics!
