I saw this artwork in Santa Fe last week and of course I thought of the 12 x 12 challenge! I really liked the idea of all the little bits of printed text, but felt the final result is a bit unfocused. I thought about what I would do for the challenge all through our trip and discarded at least 40 ideas. Today I actually started working on my piece. It is nothing like this!
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.
