Challenge Revealed

Today was the day to reveal the "Gossip Quilt Challenge".  There was one photograph, taken by an Artrageous Husband, that was seen by the first person in each of three groups.  That person made a quilt based on or inspired by that photograph.  The next person in line did NOT see the photograph, only the quilt made from it.  On and on it went, like the game of telephone, each person making a quilt after only seeing the one coming immediately before them.  We had three groups simply because of time limits.  Here are the results:
We were not disappointed!  The quilts did not end up looking much like the photograph at all.  The original photo is in the top left corner.  It was a simple sunset photo taken at Lake Mattamuskeet, with two trees in the foreground and a sliver of moon in the sky.  All of the quilts measure a uniform 11" x 14" and will be on display together at the Crystal Coast Quilters Guild quilt show in Morehead City, NC on May 13 and 14.

Here is my quilt and a close-up to see detail:
