Announcing...

I am thrilled to picked the new theme for our 2012 Series.... Maps. The reveal day will be May 1, 2012.

This idea of maps kept rising to the top of my mind as I considered themes over the last few weeks. Whether you take inspiration from an actual map showing borders, boundaries and land forms, or you explore the more personal idea of mapping a journey, I hope this theme generates lots of wonderful art quilts! I'm already brainstorming many interesting possibilities...

Rather than mention any of these endless possibilities, I'll leave that for us all to share on the blog as we ponder the new theme.

I will say that Kristy created a map for the Shelter theme in our original 12x12 Series. So, this might not be an entirely fresh theme, but I am still quite eager to see what develops.

In our original Theme Series, I chose the theme "Chairs." So when I found this image on Pinterest via RoddyandGinger, I knew "maps" was the right choice for the next theme. Actually it even fits my ColorPlay Series theme, BrownSageBlue!

And Diane's blue/brown/sage piece was a map as well! Great theme. Lots to ponder. I am going away to ponder now. Ponder, ponder, ponder.....

Metamorphosis, and now Maps -- it appears we could be on a path of self discovery. :-)
