So yeah. I'm done. In the coming weeks, I'm going to try to make an animation of all 366 blocks (with my husband's help). I'll post it when it's finished. Meanwhile, here they are. Some I loved, some I hated, some were good enough. My favorites are at the bottom of the post.
my second favorite...
and I have a special, deep, unhealthy love for this guy who is my new boyfriend (but don't tell my other boyfriend - Otto, the muscle man I carved back in July)...
Thank you all for supporting me, leaving me comments and suggesting subjects for me. This was a lot of fun, but I must say I'm glad it's over. See ya!

Okay. Trying to catch that elusive Christmas spirit. This is based on the reindeer from the project I did for Quilting Arts Magazine's Gifts issue - on sale now! Go buy it!.

A happy-to-be-doing-it dancing bear (for Took). I'm in no way suggesting that one should force bears or any other animals to dance, or wear tutus or ride each other or anything like that. I, on the other hand, love to dance and spent much of my childhood in a tutu, so if I were this bear, I would be happy-to-do-it. For some reason, Disco Inferno is running through my head - I think that's what he (yes he) is dancing to. I still have a fever, be nice to me.

Yeah, so another someone in a tutu riding someone else block. I have a fever, so I don't even know what this looks like. I hope it looks like what I mean it to look like.
I just noticed the dame has skinny toothpick arms like me...must be a self portrait.

Okay, so. A while ago I co-wrote a book called the Art Quilt Workbook with Jane Dávila. You might remember it from me blogging about it. Or not. Anyway, we went and wrote us another book. Art Quilts at Play will be released in January 2009, and is described thusly - 22 exciting new ways to play with surface design techniques and materials, plus ideas for collaborating with other artists. Bonus: Challenges, Trades & Collaborations.
If you are so inclined, you can pre-order a copy (with our autographs and everything!) from me (click me).
We had a bunch of student artists and collaborating artists who contributed their work, and we are ever so grateful to them.
our collaborating artists:
Kim Rae Nugent
Karen Stiehl Osborn
a little somthin' somthin' to whet your appetites:
