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?

1000 Quilt Inspirations Update

In early March I learned that my work will be a part of 1000 Quilt Inspirations, edited by Sandra Sider and published by Quatro Publishing Group USA.

1000 Quilt Inspirations, Book Cover The book is scheduled for release February 2015. Part of the publisher’s teaser reads:

As one of the core, traditional crafts, quilting is enjoyed by countless enthusiasts around the world – and its popularity is only growing. This collection of one thousand quilt details builds upon this interest, showcasing some of today’s most innovative and beautiful work.

I have no idea which work or works I submitted will appear in the book so I’ll be interested to receive a copy next year.

1000 Quilt Inspirations

I’ll be at least one in a thousand — that’s the news from Quarry Books, the publisher releasing 1000 Quilt Inspirations, a new book to be released in the near future.  Dr. Sandra Sider, a New York quilt artist and independent curator, will be selecting the winning designs.

The Call for Entries states, in part, that Quarry Books is looking for

innovative interpretations of old favorites as well as original blocks and art quilts designed by you that explore the possibilities of modular design.

I submitted eleven art quilts and I have no idea which one(s) have been selected for the book. They promise more news about the project in April.

Even better news: the deadline for entering this Call for Entries has been extended to March 31, 2014. See the official Call with all the details you need here.
