I admit it, I've been a little behind on this challenge. Between book writing at the beginning , Disneyland, dieting and exercise, and the craziness of everyday life I just haven't had the energy to do much creative. Plus the color scheme is way out of my comfort zone. Finally, last week I have made myself get to work. I started with quilting a big pile of fabric sandwiches. Over the weekend my parents took all the kids over night. My husband was away at "men's weekend" so I had the house to myself and time to paint. I had a lot of fun once I got to work. Orange really isn't as scary as I make it out to be. Now that I have the raw materials I need to get to work putting them together into a quilt. I still have a few days, right?
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.
