Diane's painted Maverick work in the 2012 series, Art with a Needle and Thread , is in a sketchbook style and reflects her exploration with sketching, lettering and water colours. You can read more about this meditative practice on Tea and Talk for Two, a trans-Atlantic blog conversation that she engages in with UK Twelve Helen.
We are twelve quilt artists who have embarked on an art challenge together. For four years, we each made a 12x12 inch quilted art piece on a designated theme or palette. For 2012, we have decided to change things a bit. We are making rectangular pieces, 20x12 inches, and we'll allow roughly 10 weeks between each challenge. As before, we'll have a designated theme for each challenge. We use this blog to share our process, progress, and results. We're from different places throughout the world and our artistic styles vary, but we share a love of art quilting and a desire to play, experiment, learn, and grow.
