Happy New Year and welcome to the January 2012 Quilt of the Month.

The calendars have been turned to 2012, a week has passed, and many New Year's resolutions have already been abandoned. We applaud those who can make a resolution and have the discipline to stick with it. While people may not always associate discipline with art, indeed that is exactly what it takes many times: rising to write at 3 a.m., painting on a cloudy day, or in Michael James' example, not leaving the studio until the piece was done. In his Day Book series we see the rewards of discipline and craft combined with creativity and purpose. Enjoy this month'squilt and share it with your friends.
This is one of the quilts shown in the new exhibition A Tribute to Ardis James.
