Cutting-Edge Art Quilts

A new book written by Mary Kerr, focuses on Art Quilts.  This is a treat for the eye, the color photography is wonderful.  Mary has collected over 50 artists and quilters, she shows their work, and includes statements and other contributions by the artists.
Instead of arranging the book alphabetically by artists, she created six categories.
  • Color Play; I'm on page 18-21
  • Alternative Fibers
  • Threadwork
  • Special Techniques
  • Designs and Embellishments
  • Art Quilts Inspired by Photographs
This makes the book interesting to leaf through. There are 270 color images within the 159 pages that are hardcover bound.  There is something that will appeal to everyone; along with names you will recognize and some that you may not. I love to hear what the maker says about their work, and this book is full of their thoughts and ideas.

It is published by Schiffer Publishing; ISBN: 978-0-7643-4313-1, 34.99.  Give yourself a gift!
