It's not likely I'll finish anything else in the next three days, so here's the collection of art quilts I made in 2017. I'm posting them here without much commentary, review or introspection. Not all the pictures are great. It's just a tally.
At the very end, I've included what I consider small, medium and large and how many I made in each category.
White Dog with Purple Sprouts, 6x6
White Dog Under A Green Sky, 6x6
White Dog with Orange Posies, 6x6
This White Dog series will be available at the "Think Pawsitive" fundraiser at Craft Napa in January.
In A Moment, 12x9

Everything At Once, 12x9
This series of bowl quilts were made to illustrate an upcoming article in Quilting Arts magazine.

I don't really consider these "finished" art quilts, but it's a great teaching tool and definitely something that got "done" in 2017.

Both of these pieces were made as demo samples for my appearance on The Quilt Show.
Cultivate and Climb, 20x20
Cup of Kindness, 48x32
