The Twelve by Twelve exhibition opened at the Craft & Quilt Fair in Hamilton yesterday and attracted a steady stream of admirers throughout the day. We have been allocated a large exhibition space which allows each theme to be presented in distinctive sets. There's also space to display my Colourplay quilts so far along with posters of the cover of our forthcoming book. The show continues until Sunday 12 September before travelling onto Christchurch. Stop by if you can!
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.
