Flowers of Friendship

For those of you that might not know, I am the moderator of the FiberArt Trading Cards Yahoo Group. This is a gathering of artists who share a love of trading cards, and a unique vision to make meaningful, creative, and of course fiber related art! Although we are using mostly fiber materials, our work may also incorporate the use of different mediums... collage, assemblage, and mixed media.

Not only do I have the fun of coordinating exciting swaps/exchanges and projects for this group, I also have the pleasure of working with some MEGA TALENTED fiber artists. Seeing their work, up close and personal, is a BIG BONUS as moderator!!!

Recently, our group has been working on a very special exchange called The Flowers of Friendship Mini Quilt. Artists were asked to create Fiber ATCs depicting their favorite flower. Each ATC was then bound into a 3x4 mini quilt or quiltlet.

The idea behind the swap was inspired by spring flowers blooming in the garden and this book on friendship quilts.

So, I thought I would share the finished artwork of my friends, near and far!
