Books on Sunday

I'm a trifle distracted these days with too many deadlines, but I did want to tell you about a package that the postman brought earlier this week. The Customs Declaration said knitting book and DH suggested that I already had too many knitting books (preposterous, I'd say!). But honestly I didn't remember ordering the Art Quilt Collection book that was in the package.

 I spent some time looking through the book, lovely, yummy pictures and discovered this little gem on page 130! I had long forgotten having sent this in when I received a call for entry in Dec. 2009. So it was a wonderful surprise to not only get a book in the mail but discover that it had a quilt of mine too!


There are many other illustrious artist in the book including my friend Daphne Greig (page 78), Elizabeth Barton (pages 38, 79), Marianne Burr (page 110), Lisa Call (page 41) and many more.

The back blurb states: Using the well-established methods and styles of the centuries-old handicraft, art quilts combine fabrics and other materials to create innovative, stunning, and contemporary results. Art Quilt Collection profiles several artists in the field-many of them award-winning-along with their creations, showing readers the step-by-step process by which scraps of fabric become vibrant works of art. Readers will be inspired to experiment with quilting techniques and create their own unique pieces.

This book would be a great addition to your art quilt collection.
