Twelve by Twelve: A Collaborative Art Quilt Project

CQ member Brenda Smith belongs to the Twelve by Twelve Collaborative Art Quilt Project, an international group of twelve quilt artists who have embarked upon an online art challenge together. Every two months, they each make a small quilted art piece -- 12 by 12 inches – based on a theme chosen by each member in turn.

The group share their process and progress on their blog and the finished works, together with artist statements, are showcased on their dedicated website gallery. The group's latest challenge quilts are due to be revealed online today (1 October US time). The theme is "shelter" and it is always interesting to see how the theme is interpreted.

This marks the midpoint in the Twelve by Twelve challenge timetable. To celebrate this milestone, they encourage readers to leave a comment about this project and to enter a draw for some notecards featuring the collaborative quilt mosaics.
