I have had so long to think about what this final theme of the original 12 might be, that I overthought. I felt it had to be something that would be the perfect conclusion, the final summation, the theme that would somehow tie everything up into a tidy package! I do know, of course, that this is not the end, but it is the completion of our 12 by 12 by 12 planned project.
One night last week, as I was trying to fall asleep, it came to me. The simple, and it seemed to me, perfect, answer. And so, I present to you our twelfth theme—"Twelve." A magical number, indeed, just think of all the times that 12 is the number.

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.
