Exciting news – my quilt makes the cover of a book!

Color Improvisations

A short post this time with exciting news: Sandra Sider’s new book, The Studio Quilt, no. 6: State of the Art, has recently been published and is now available on Amazon – http://www.amazon.com/Studio-Quilt-no-State-Art/dp/1463789467/ref=sr_1_6?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1321838591&sr=1-6

 Why is this exciting? A photo of my quilt, “Seeing the Light” is on the cover! This is one of the two quilts which are traveling around Europe and the British Isles with the Color Improvisations exhibition. The Amazon price for The Studio Quilt, no. 6: State of the Art is only $15.00 – considerably less expensive than the price on the quilt – which is also for sale!

This 56-page volume of The Studio Quilt series showcases recent contemporary quilt art by sixty artists, with one quilt by each, including an introduction by critic and curator Sandra Sider. The quilts were selected by her via an international call for entries. I haven’t seen the book yet, but am very excited about it!

  1. Just talked with a friend who published a quilt book some years ago. It sold for $30 was eventually remaindered for $6. She bought 300 copies (her husband nearly choked to death) but over the years sold them all for the original price. She’d bring them to every speaking engagement and would sell a few copies.

    Not that this book will ever be remaindered, but just in case….

    Love that you are so successful these days!

  2. What wonderful news!! We look forward to seeing the book. You are getting the recognition you so richly deserve. Toni

  3. Your art will be featured far and wide – it resonates with many –
    Congratulations and keep those visions flowing –
