I finished up a couple of weeks of marathon quilting for my Q=A=Q submission. I have another big project to work on, but before I got to that, I thought I better get the next theme done. I was clueless when I went down to my studio and started looking at fabrics and paints. Then I spied my drawer of roving. Bingo. So I started to do some machine felting, but I broke the screw that the needles attach to on my Bernina. What to do?
Nuno felting! I think I like it better. So this is a sneak peek at a corner. Because you get a lot of shrinkage with felting, I was not sure what I would end up with. But it is just about 12 inches square. After it dries, I will do some hand stitching and maybe some embellishment.
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.
