Architecture: The 12 x 12 Challenge

Women Against the Grain!  I'm a newbie with this art quilt group, and two months ago, I was one of the members who rose to what's known as a 12 x 12 challenge.  Participants in a 12 x 12 challenge each produce a 12 x 12 quilt inspired by a challenge word.  In this case, the challenge word, chosen by one of our members, was the word architecture.

For me, thinking of a subject was a no-brainer.  I have a favorite architectural style--the bungalow--and a pile of books about them.  I chose an image of a bungalow in St. Helena, CA, and produced this 12 x 12 quilt:

But whoa, wait 'til you see what the other Women Against the Grain produced!

It's a pleasure and an inspiration--and, okay, kind of humbling--to rub shoulders with these talented ladies.
Brava, Women Against the Grain!

The word for the next challenge, which is due at the end of August, is a little intimidating:  chemistry.  Holy test tubes!
