It's been quite fun these past few years creating a small art quilt (11.5" x 16") six times a year. Each member gets to pick a theme and there have been some unique themes that certainly have pushed us! But that is the fun...to push ourselves into creating and even exploring new techniques.
Back in 2014, there was an article in Embellish magazine about our group. I was lucky enough to have one of my themed quilts included in this article.
This was my finished piece for the theme Carnival, which was included in the article. You can see how I created this piece in my blog post here.
Recently, our group was once again show cased in another magazine
This was a FB post from Fleur Maddern, who is very instrumental in keeping this group going and in the promotion of our group.
And I feel so honored to have another one of my themed quilts, Flights of Fantasy, included. Once again you can see the process on this quilt here.

Our next theme is 'Nursery Rhyme'
"Illustrate your own amusing reason for an author to have written what he /she did. ie was little jack Horner a naughty boy and was sent into the corner as punishment? Did another egg push Humpty Dumpty off the wall?"
by Christine Lee
This is such an interesting challenge! Aren't they all, HA!!! I have an idea that I've put to paper and I've started on the actual design. Once again...what is in my mind may be difficult to put to fabric but I'm up for the challenge! Do check out Fleur's blog post on the group and, if interested, you can sign up to be put on the 'waiting list'!
