Quilt National 2007
Lark Books, Dairy Barn Southeastern Ohio Cultural Arts Center
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2007 - Crafts & Hobbies - 111 pages
Presented on these exquisite pages are the most innovative quilts being designed today, all selected for the world-class 15th biennial international juried quilt exhibition. For 30 years, the exhibition—which travels throughout America—has served as a showcase for contemporary quilt artists who expand the boundaries of the craft. Large, spectacular color photographs and the artists’ commentary will fill home quilters with inspiration. All the pieces are genuine artworks meant for display, and they set the standard and serve as the model for other art quilts. Innovative and complex, they reveal themselves slowly and reward you with new insights each time you take another look. From computer-generated images to abstract patterns to human figures, these designs are rich in metaphors, stories, and historical tradition.
