Update from Deborah

Even after nine years, 12x12 is still such a cherished part of my life -- personal and artistic.

I flew to Portland just a couple of weeks ago especially to meet Helen, but also because Kristin, Gerrie and Terry live there. We had a fabulous get together. It's pretty cool to have five of the twelve of us in one place. Now I just need to get to New Zealand to meet Kirsty.

My "lorikeet" quilt has been in my mind a lot over the past year or so.

I've continued to explore the ladder as a personal symbol. This is Evening Climb, also 12x12.

Plus, Yellow Ladder is on the back of my new book!

That's right, I am thrilled that my new book is now available. It's called Art Quilt Collage: A Creative Journey in Fabric, Paint and Stitch

Several of my 12x12 quilts are included in the book. I included a list and a shout-out about the project on the About the Author page. 

I've got signed copies available in my Etsy shop. As a thank you I'm included a fat-eighth of original surface designed fabric with the first 50 copies purchased directly from me. 

I also write regularly about inspiration and how to convert inspiration into art. I hope you'll consider subscribing to my newsletter Three Bits of Inspiration.

Honestly, I look back on my work and experience with 12x12 as one of the greatest sources of inspiration and it's so thrilled to think it's been inspiring to others too.

Congratulations on your book! I love seeing how we have fledged from our Twelve y Twelve nest.

I'm pleased to say that I got one of those first 50 books (along with the surface designed fat-eighth!) I've recommended it to all of my friends. :o))

It was a pleasure to meet you at the Western North Carolina Quilt Guild meeting and your class was one of my BEST ever experiences. TOTALLY worth the 3-hour drive!!
