This is a pile of 38 felt panels for displaying our quilts in Houston. Terry cut them and handed them over to me a couple of days ago. With the 3 that Deborah has, we are more than half way to having them ready for attaching the quilts.
I am so happy that I am able to help do this project. We are finally getting summer here in Portland. It was nice to sit in my cool basement studio and stitch.
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.
