Oh happy day, Twelve by Twelve is finally out. The book celebrates the work of 12 quilt artists who chronicled their creative goings on via blogging at Twelve by Twelve: The International Art Quilt Challenge. Here’s how Amazon describes the book,Twelve by Twelve examines the two-year-long international collaboration between twelve art quilters, during which they created a total of 144 quilts based on twelve different themes. Not only does the book showcase the quilts themselves–a feature quilt from each theme receives an in-depth chapter, written by one of the quilters–it also examines the dynamics of developing a vibrant online community of artists. The result is a very personal and unique blend of technique-based text and discussions on challenge, collaboration, and inspiration.
