After the most recent reveal of my Four-in-Art quilt: The Brave Little Tailor, I had a request that it would be nice to see all the quilts from this past year shown together. Then while I was pulling the quilts, I thought it would be nice to see them all together again.
Our theme for the year was Nature. Q1: Queen Anne's Lace. Q2: Tree: If Napolean were a Tree Q3: Fire: NASA Sun Spectrum Q4: Owl You can click on the links to take you back to the original posts.

Q1: Little Red Riding Hood Q2: Cinderella Q3: The Princess and the Pea Q4: The Brave Little Tailor
It's been a really fun experience doing these art quilts. Some things I'd like to try again. Some not so much. I definitely have favorites, and some that I don't really need to see again, but I will keep them all. Even just looking at them all laid out, I can see that there wasn't a lot of excitement about this year. Just a phase, of course, and interestingly a phase shared with other members this year.
Of course the friendships that I've made through these quilts are worth it all.
This next year we will continue on, even as the membership continues to change and perhaps even grow. I am the sort of 'chairwoman' of the group starting now. Mostly to keep everyone on the same page - no bossing allowed. Our theme for 2016 is Color (colour, why is British spelling so much cooler?) And our Q1 theme will be Microscopic. Quite the challenge. I am very excited to move forward this year.
