Today marks the end of the second round of Twelve by Twelve challenges with the reveal of our final
Colorplay challenge—orange! It is the color I got to choose. Orange is such a happy color, though I do think a little goes a long way. Inspired by our garden, here is my piece, Orange Lilies. Check our blog today for all the Orange pieces.
Now that this second round of challenges is over, the Twelves are discussing what might happen next. For one thing all quilts from both challenges, 288 in all, will be featured in a special exhibit at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, November 3-6. We are thrilled! We had hoped to all be in attendance, but several of the group are not going to be able to make the trip. I am very excited to be going to Houston and looking forward to meeting more of my Twelve "sisters." Some time after Houston we will be announcing what our next project will be. We are taking a little break until then, but do not worry—we will be doing something!
To celebrate this milestone I am giving away another copy of our book, Twelve by Twelve: The International Art Quilt Challenge. Leave a comment if you'd like to be put into a drawing for the book. I will take comments through September 3. On September 4 I will announce the winner.
