Mr B's Emporium of Reading Delights is an independent book shop in Bath. Last year it won the prize for the best Independent Bookshop in the South West and in 2008 it was the best Independent Bookshop fullstop as voted for at the British Book Industry Awards. It is a beauiful place to browse wth leather chairs to read in by a fire, and free coffee and staff who know more about books than you thought it was possible to know.
And look what is in the window. Can you see it?
No? Shall I go closer for you?
There is our book - prime place right by the door. No missing 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.
