For me, one of the lasting benefits of being part of the Twelve by Twelve International Art Quilt Challenge, has been the opportunity to test out design ideas in a small format before developing works on a larger scale. Indeed, the Twelve by Twelve project has sparked many series in my portfolio.
My Flying Colours series started with Lorikeet Circus in the Colourplay challenge and the latest piece, Budgies Uncaged (125x125cm), has been selected as a finalist in the Australasian Quilt Convention 2013 challenge - FREE.
Come along to AQC in Melbourne next week, 18-21 April. The fabulous Kirsten and I will be giving daily floor talks at the Colourplay exhibition at 1.30pm..
