For 2009, we return to the original Journal Quilt format, 8½ by 11 inches, the size of standard writing paper. In keeping with the early years of the project, in which each artist submitted several of the monthly exercises as a set, the QuiltArt community wanted to exhibit the pieces as sets. The web designer allowed that it was possible, and the curator decided on sets of three. Thus this year’s theme is Triple Play.
Some of these art quilts have concepts behind them, some are just exercises in either technique or design. We think they will strike you as intriguing, thought-provoking, inspiring, beautiful, or some combination. The organizers were impressed with the work, and none among us is easily impressed.
The on-line exhibit is based on the original Journal Quilt Exhibit sponsored by Karey Bresenhan of Quilts, Inc., created by the contributing members of the QuiltArt mailing list. We hope this year’s on-line exhibit is an inspiration to all you fiber artists who aspire to creating Beauty, in whatever form that takes for you.
As always, thanks to our First Inspiration, Karey Bresenhan, and Special Thanks to our website designer/creator, G. Armour Van Horn. Most of all, thank you to the Entrants in this year’s "Triple Play" Journal Quilt On-Line Exhibit!
