Today has been a day off working in the studio with Best Quilting Buddy Lesley and one of the achievements has been to finish the metamorphosis quilt. I know. Now what am I going to do for five weeks? :)
I will save the actual quilt for reveal but let me give you some teasers
This is the left overs
and this is one of the U-Tube videos I watched to be in the right mood whilst making it
and this was a highly influential book during the process.
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.
