One of the other media that I work in is printmaking—well, not so much since fabric has taken over my life. This is a linocut that I made in 1996, which is, as I think about it, probably the last print on paper that I made, so maybe I'm not really a printmaker anymore. A window. I have a tendency to make things more complicated than they need to be, so I am still happy with the simplicity of this window. I considered printing it on fabric to use in the window theme piece, but it would take me two months to find the block I'm afraid.
We are twelve quilt artists who embarked on an art challenge together. We're from different places throughout the world and our artistic styles vary, but we share a love of art quilting and a desire to play, experiment, learn, and grow.
For four years (2007-2011), we each made a 12x12 inch quilted art piece on a designated theme or palette. See our Theme Series and our Colorplay series.
For the 2012 Series, we changed things a bit and made rectangular pieces, 20x12 inches with roughly 10 weeks between each challenge. As before, we had a designated theme for each challenge.
We shared our process, progress, and results on this blog. It remains a key record of our rich collaboration.
