It started over on twitter… just one mention of loving Gene Kelly and there was instantly a chorus of people agreeing and a suggestion of a Gene Kelly Craft Along! Who am I to say no to a combination of two things I love?? Gene Kelly and crafting?? I’m IN!
Gene Kelly is my all time favorite movie star ever. There’s just something about his natural charisma and his amazing dancing (and ok – I admit it, his dreamy good looks don’t hurt!) that just works for me. I have also always been a lover of classic films and many of the musicals that Gene Kelly was a part of are simply amazing film making. (Let’s ignore Xanadu, ok??) Singing in the Rain, An American in Paris, On the Town… I just love them all!
Now HOW to make a quilt that’s inspired by him?!? This is admittedly daunting but I’m gonna give it a shot! My love for GK runs too deep to not join in the craft along! The others joining in (so far!) are Sister Diane, Marlo, Rachel, Stacie, and Tara.
Why don’t YOU join us too?? No rules, no deadlines, no difficult obligations! It’s just all about expressing the GK love through your craft! Here’s the flickr group so that we can all enjoy the crafty goodness that is certain to result from a Gene Kelly Craft Along!!
