The challenge was for each of us to create a quilt, 18" x 24", that used at least 48 square inches of the painted canvas. Later, we'll temporarily stitch these 12 smaller quilts into one large 72" x 72" piece that can be entered into shows as a "group" quilt.
For the unveiling, we arranged our individual quilts on the floor, according to the original grid. (For example, I had the piece of painted canvas from position #9 on the grid, so my quilt was placed in that position on the floor.) One person missed the meeting, hence the "hole" in position #4.

Standing above these quilts in the fading light, I tried to photograph them, but wasn't very successful. This shot of Chris' and Maureen's quilts was the only salvageable one:
