Since we've had gray as our focus (stay tuned for tomorrow's reveal!!) I've been noticing a lot of gray -- especially how nice a background it can make. And then today, while looking for something in the closet, I came across this mola from Mexico, I think, that my mother-in-law had in her things when she died. As the only Textile Obsessed person in the family, it and others came to me.
But isn't it striking? Gray, red and white make a very strong combination.
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.
