My Kilauea quilt is asking to be in silk. I had some of the colors including that gorgeous shibori from Glennis Dolce, Shibori Girl. I didn't have a good lava black. I dyed some last night and you can see the two pieces. I like them both. I still need to work on that taupe color if I want to use all of the colors that Kristin gave us. My gray should be a little lighter and I will work on that today. The Colorhue dyes are so fantastic when you need instant gratification with silk.
I need to get this done because I want to make new work for the Artists Among Us show next month.
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.
