Happy Valentine's Day! The Twelves are sharing the love with the opening of the Colourplay exhibition at the Craft & Quilt Fair at Arena Manawatu in Palmerston North, New Zealand that opens today 14 February and continues until Sunday, 17 February, 10am – 4.30pm daily.
Thank you to Chrissy who looked after installation of the exhibit. (Photos to follow.) If you get to see the exhibition in New Zealand, please let us know what captured your heart. ❤
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.
