The dark blue sign is my somewhat free interpretation of the Chinese characters meaning "twelve". All fabrics are hand dyed.
The twelve little red shapes represent the members of the 12x12 art quilt group, scattered around the world, eight in the USA, two in Australia, one in England, and one in Belgium. There are also 12 cross stitches, they're almost connected.
And I added twelve tiny beads all together in the upper right corner. Quilters tend to love these little embellishments. I first thought of adding a small embellishment to each red rectangle, but after all, I liked them plain and simple as they were.
I've posted more detail pictures on my blog.
