We are so excited about our new book, "Twelve by Twelve: The International Art Quilt Challenge" we couldn't stop our celebration at just one day. Joining in the party is simple -- every day we will pose a new question about art, quilting, inspiration and community. Leave us an answer in the comments and you will be entered in a drawing for free copies of our book. Feel free to come every day, as every comment counts as a separate entry. The book drawing is closed. Stay tuned for the winner details.
Throughout our Theme series we chose a wide variety of topics from concrete objects like "Chair" to abstract ideas like "Identity". Which of the 12 themes did you like best (or which one did you find most inspiring)? Did you make a quilt from it?
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.
