1000 Quilt Inspirations

I am honored to have my work published in Sandra Sider’s 1000 Quilt Inspirations, Colorful and Creative Designs for Traditional, Modern, and Art Quilts.  From the cover and the turn of each page, this book delivers on its title. Click on image for a larger view.

I even like the size of the book, a table-top friendly 9 1/8″ square.

I submitted samples of my work for this book in 2014 and wrote about it here and here. The book was published by Quarry Books in 2015, the year that I moved from California to Oregon. I  didn’t learn which of my works had been selected for the book until I purchased it. Five of my works were selected for the Pictorial Art Quilt Designs section. Here are three of my Broken Ginkgo series.

And the last two, more play with one of my favorite subjects.

Works here represent every imaginable technique created by artists from around the world. There is truly something here for anyone who is interested in creating or simply appreciating the art of quilting. I find myself browsing this book, finding something new each time I do.

How do you stay inspired?

    Wow, Franki, five of your quilts in one book! I’m not surprised since you are such a great artist. Sandra has very good taste!

      Thank you Sara! I was surprised not to see any of your fine work. I trust that you just didn’t submit any.
