British Patchwork & Quilting

So pleased to learn that 12 by the Dozen was profiled in the current issue of British Patchwork & Quilting. I was a member of this group for about 7 years, having resigned just last year.

Mentioned in the article is the week-long get-together the group had in England in the summer of 2016, when seven of us met up at Birmingham's Festival of Quilts. At least two former members also shared in the festivities.

Despite the occasional swapping out of members, this international group has continued to forge ahead with quarterly challenges. Their latest series is inspired by individual artists, each of the twelve members setting the subject in turn. The most recent "virtual exhibition" focused on the works of M.C. Escher. Previous challenges have centred on Klee, Klimt and Hundertwasser.

You can learn more about 12 by the Dozen by going to their website and blog.
