Hi. Terry Grant here. I have nearly all the quilts from both series of 12 by 12 challenges at my house right now. It would be awful if my house burned down. Oh, no, wait! Why did I even think of that?! Erase, erase. Forget I even said that!
Anyway, I am getting things organized for the showing of both series at the International Quilt Festival in Houston in November. Gerrie Congdon and I are going to be attaching all 288 pieces to black felt panels that will be hung in Houston. Today I opened all the boxes containing the Colorplay series quilts, which each artist has been individually sending me, and I started sorting them into challenge groups.
What fun I have had today, looking at each piece. It is like seeing them for the first time. There really is so much more to see in person than on our blog. And while some of us thought the Colorplay quilts were not as interesting as the Theme series, I am not so sure. Really folks, they are wonderful!
Here they are, bundled by challenge, ready to take to Gerrie's later this week for attaching to the panels, packaging and shipping.
I can't wait to see them all hanging in Houston. It gives me chills to think about it.
