12 x 12

My local quilting shop, Midsomer Quilting, has this weekend held an exhibition of an international group of quilt artists, the 12 x 12 exhibition. Each of the twelve artists has produced a 12" x 12" art quilt each month over twelve months. The theme this year was Colourplay. Each artist chose a colour or colour idea, one for each month. There were a mixture of quilts from very simple, to complex and obviously time consuming, from literal to abstract, with a range of different quilting styles. It was a similar exhibition two years ago that inspired Midsomer Quilting to hold their own challenge. The first was on a theme of Fruit, last year the theme was Books and this year the theme is to be Film. I haven't come up with my own idea for this year yet.
