Quilting Art: Inspiration, Ideas & Innovative Works from 20 Contemporary Quilters

Over a year ago Spike Gillespie invited me to be part of a book she was planning to write focusing on 20 art quilters. I just received my copy and this large format book is stunning. Spike chose a wide range of fiber artists who stylistically create very different work. She interviewed each artist and then wrote a piece on that person’s inner development as an artist  finding her voice as well as her creative process. It’s quite compelling, inspiring and readable. I’m still working through  it all but I find it so fascinating to hear about each person’s road to her moment of self identity as an artist. Spike also highlights a piece of “advice” from each artist. I’ll write more about my “advice” later. It may ruffle a few feathers…

And the artwork is delicious! Beautiful full page high res shots and close ups.

I was  somewhat nervous to turn to my section. It’s alarming to see one’s face and art in a book. It feels so permanent. But I’m very happy with the piece she wrote about my work and process and it felt true to me which was what was most important to me.

This book has just become available on Amazon.
