After we had complete our second year of 15 inch squares, it seemed like time to try a different format and size.
For 2015 we will all make 4 quilts instead of 6. They will be revealed at the end of February, May, August and November.
The size will be maximum of 24 by 17 and minimum of 20 by 15 inches, but each member can choose the exact size, and orientation.
Each challenge will be a design principle or style, not a thing or an idea.
Participants will have an overall theme for the year. This could be anything that has meaning for you - and it can be as narrow or wide as you like. This theme will unify each member's body of work, but each challenge will be interpreted as we have done before.
I was interested to see a challenge using a similar overall theme idea by Mix group - see Elainemillarfiberworks.blogspot.com, the dates from April 27th 2014 and the previous posts.
The first challenge was set by Lyuda and is the colour Green.
I am excited to see our group evolve their work this way, which will add a level of cohesiveness to each person's work that we didn't all embrace in the previous 2 years, though some members came close.
