It's been another busy and exciting day at the Craft & Quilt Fair in Hamilton. Thank you to everyone who stopped by the Twelve by Twelve exhibition for your thoughtful and enthusiastic comments. I'm now warmly esconced in Kirsty's childhood home with access to the internet and have had an opportunity to update the Lorikeet mosaic. Kirsty's Bleep Bloop looks right at home too:
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.
