I had very few of these colors in my stash of fabric. I was about to paint some fabric when I noticed that I had all of the colors in my wool roving stash. I decided to felt the piece. I wanted to machine felt it, but I broke an attachment so I thought I would try my hand at nuno (wet)felting.
The felted piece was attached to a 12 by 12 inch square of felt. I then beaded and stitched with perle cotton. This is probably the most embellished piece I have ever constructed!!
You can see how I did the nuno felting on my blog, Crazy for Fiber. Here is a detail shot.

About Twelve by Twelve
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.
