Statement

I wanted to express the breadth of the ideas that I have learnt from being a member of the Quiltart community, so I chose fifteen things which have been meaningful to me, one for every year that Quiltart has existed.  Some of these are techniques or products, while others relate to subjects discussed on the list.  This quilt was experimental, as it was the first time I have used Lesley Riley's TAP, the first time I have used Adobe Illustrator to create text for a quilt, and one of the few times I have used a sheer layer over a project.  Throughtout the design and execution I had to figure out how to do each step to make it work in the way I had envisioned the project, as my initial concepts did not work in practice.
