ANYA is the winner! To enter for a chance to win a copy of Twelve by Twelve, leave a comment on this post by 11 p.m. EST on March 2, 2011. Any comment will do, but we’d love to hear about any quilting projects you’re working on, or what part of the interviews so far has inspired you.

For anyone that didn’t already know: Each day for twelve (business) days, we’re interviewing one of the talented quilt artists who contributed to Twelve by Twelve.

How do you describe your own quilting? Has being part of the Twelves group changed your perspective on your own work?
I describe my work as mostly pictorial. I discovered that the small format we worked with suited me very well. There is something very appealing to me in focusing in on a small part of what could perhaps be a larger picture. It is contemplative and forces one to consider the small details that might be overlooked in a larger piece.
