Twelve by Twelve

Congratulations to Guild member Brenda Gael Smith who is one of the co-authors of the newly-published book, Twelve by Twelve: The International Art Quilt Challenge. It is published by Lark Books and is now available.

Over the course of two years, twelve quilt artists from around the world challenged each other to create small quilts on a theme of one of the artist's choosing. The result: 144 twelve-inch art quilts created by the Twelve by Twelve group.

Members will recall seeing a presentation on this challenge by Brenda at the Burwood meeting in May last year. All 144 quilts have been on display at three venues in Australia in 2010 and are now travelling overseas.

Brenda will donate a copy of the book to the Guild so that members can share the story of the Twelve by Twelve international art quilt challenge. Look out for it in the Guild library soon.
