I'm just back from Athens Ohio and Quilt National which you can read about on my blog http://www.fiberartmusings.blogspot.com
While there I was asked to participate on a panel discussion about how we came to this point in our artistic lives to enter Quilt National, and I want to quote a few things I said in my talk
"Backtracking for a moment, in 2007 I was asked to join an online group called Twelve by Twelve, The International Art Quilt Challenge , started by Diane Perin Hock."
"Twelve by Twelve was one of those aha moments in my life. I was able to focus on a small piece of work, try out new techniques, and even in a last minute panic, experiment with something purely on instinct."
"...the group was supportive in every way, like a nurturing mother. I think that's just what I needed at the time to build confidence in my artwork"
So thank you Twelves, for helping me to this point in my artistic career.
