I really loved this theme -- I'm always drawn to chair images, and I had lots of ideas to work with. The hardest part of this challenge was deciding on the one I wanted to explore.
I ultimately settled on this, "the comfy chair" because it suited my emotional state during this challenge period. We all have times of difficult stuff in our lives, and for me, at those times I seek quiet and comfort. The idea of curling up in a comfy chair to read and sip coffee is my idea of the ultimate comfort!
This isn't a complex image, but I thought that the simplicity of the design suited the sense of simple, homey comfort.

About Twelve by Twelve
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.
