12 x 12 Sunshine theme

While I am still not sewing much, I may as well catch up what has been going on in my guild’s 12 x 12 group.  Sunshine was the theme in (ahem) March–so many weeks ago, I’ll just let the quilts speak for themselves.

Mine was not very inspired and I hated it until I added the pleated ribbon and beads.

Melinda’s, front and back…




Kathy’s…I hid some facial features because her husband joked that he was wanted in several states.


Sharyn’s was an exquisite embroidery of the Mayan Sun God, inspired by a trip she and I took took in February.  (Note the corn border!)










Next theme (for May) was “Seasons.”  Coming soon.

I retired in 2004 and have never missed the 8-5 grind even for a minute. Now I spend my time reading, traveling, quilting and trying to learn new things like Spanish and blogging.

    Some of these 12 x 12s are really good – I think that the bottom two – Karen’s and Linda’s should be entered into the small art quilt category at Quiltfest.

    One of these days I am going to make an art quilt. Starting with a – a 12×12 might be a good idea.

  4. So glad you posted these – it’s amazing what one can do within the 12 x 12 confine. And you’re right – the embellishment made yours sing!
