Review by Jenny Doh

twelve by twelve
There are collaborations ... and then there are collaborations.
The artists who have authored Twelve by Twelve are an amazingly talented group of art quilters who offer discoveries and creations made as each made a 2-year commitment to embark on an exploration of themes that they would interpret through small art quilts. Twelve inches by 12 inches, to be exact.
twelve by twelve
The themes they explored are Dandelion, Chocolate, Community, Water, Illumination, Shelter, Mathematics, Chairs, Windows, Identity, Passion, and Twelve.

What's fascinating about this book is that each theme intersects with the diverse skill sets, passions, and imaginations of each artist ... resulting in art quilts that run the gamut of color, composition, texture, and overall aesthetic. Each artist also invites us into their creative space as we get a special behind-the-scenes look into how their works are imagined and executed.

Twelve by Twelve is a marvelous achievement. It is a book that is sure to inspire creativity, collaboration, and most of all: community.
