Terry and I went to Tacoma, WA on the train to attend the APWQ show. We were so excited to have Nikki come down and hang out with us for awhile. We were having so much fun chatting, that we did not take a photo of the three of us. Sorry!! We also got to see Del Thomas and got to introduce her to Nikki.
We saw our book in one of the booths, and we had several people recognize us and tell us how much they enjoyed our blog and our book.
This morning, we went to the Tacoma Art Museum. In the lounge area, I noticed the orange pillow and the orange rug!
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.
