Our Theme Series are currently on show at Midsomer Quilting. De Pickford and Chris Howell transformed their classroom into a great exhibition space and the simple method of micro-tackinng the quilts to black curtains worked very well for our twelve inch quilts. I have been popping into chat to visitors and answer questions and have had a great time. The exhibition is on until tomorrow (Saturday 24th April at 4pm) and I shall be there tomorrow afternoon - last chance before Festival of Quilts in August to see the quilts and get your book signed!
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.
