We had our reveal today for Twelve by 12 http://www.twelveby12.blogspot.com/ and the results are spectacular, please go to the site and check them out. The colors this time were blue, black and white and I ended up making three different pieces. I'll show them all to you here. This first piece was made using painted interfacing and cheesecloth. I was just back from Florida and added the black stitching that reminded me of fencing on the beach in South Beach.
The second piece is also a memory of South Beach, this time the skyline. I started by stitching the outlines of the buildings, then painting them with fabric paint. My husband thought this looked too much like a New York skyline, so I tried adding the drifting thread at the bottom to give it a more casual, beachy look, but I don't think it is very successful.
This last one is my favorite. You can read about it on the Twelve site above.
