After finishing the Colorplay Series with the 12x12 group, many of us figured it was time to celebrate with gifts! Karen's husband, Ted is a glass artist and he made each of the Twelves a stunning glass dish inspired by one of her 12x12 quilts. Apparently these plates have been exchanged in secret over the past several months. No one wanted to spoil the surprise for anyone who had not yet received hers. I was SURPRISED and delighted when mine arrived several weeks ago.

It's inspired by my chartreuse 12x12 quilt titled Approaching Departure pictured below the plate.

I just love the idea of similar compositions, inspirations and designs interpreted in different media. I treasure this very generous and inspired gift! Thank you Karen and Ted.

You can see lots more of the plates on our 12x12 blog. They've been popping up throughout the week.
