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.
