I'm a little behind on this challenge. All the excitement over the book and other projects have had me distracted. Truth be told, I really don't know what I am going to do and we only have a week to go. I figured that I can't let that stop me though and I will just have to fake it until a plan comes to me. I'm hoping that playing with the colors will inspire me and a quilt will just develop. Today's activities included quilting a bunch of fabric in preparation for painting and pulling out a bunch of brown, blue and sage embellishments. Most of my greens are too bright to be called sage and brown is definitely lacking. Thankfully, the stash is deep and I managed to find some beads, wire and ribbons. I'm finding that I do like all the colors together. Perhaps when I start playing with fabric and paint inspiration will come to me.
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.
