I have finished my landscape! I just have to hand sew the facings. I had fun once I got going. I used a landscape technique that I learned from Sue Benner. The fusing is ironed to the batting and then strips of fabric are fused to the batting to create a scene.
It was so exciting to get our book delivered today. It is really gorgeous — just so full of beautiful photos of our quilts and our own personal stories. I am so proud of us. Thank you to the other twelves for staying with it and making art that we can share.
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.
