Our publisher Lark Books has completed photography of all of the quilts from the Theme Series and dispatched the quilts Down Under. It's always a little nerve wracking to ship quilts, especially across the ocean blue, but they arrived in Australia safely before Easter. Today it was my privilege to unpack them and sort them into theme sets in anticipation of our forthcoming exhibition tour.
Twelve by Twelve website I have pored over images of all of these quilts but surveying the treasures before me, I discovered an entirely new level of detail and texture: the wonderful hand stitching in Karen's community quilt Similar Differences; the three-dimensional rose petals in Gerrie's Satin Sheets; the layers and stitching in Deborah's She Sits to Dream and so on. There was no time to linger today but I look forward to the opening of our international exhibition tour at the Australasian Quilt Convention on 29 April 2010.
