500 Art Quilts

500 Art Quilts: An Inspiring Collection of Contemporary Work (500 Series) (Paperback)

Ray Hemachandra (Author), Karey Bresenhan (Author

I'm so excited to have  a quilt in this book. Collections like this tend to define the art quilt world as it swirls through it's changes. Art quilting has grown since the early 70's into an amazing art form. It's been a privilege to be part of that development. Each year brings new skills, visions, abilities, and focus. I've been teaching now for over 20 years. When a book like this includes my work,  I can't help but feel honored.

The quilt they chose was Hunter's Moon 2. Hunter's Moon overlaps several series. I've been working on a series of elongated shaped quilts because of the design possibilities. But it also was part of a series of flight at night quilts. It includes many media I've been exploring such as Angelina Fiber, hand-dyed cheesecloth, and of course thread work as solid imagery.

Here's more information about this amazing book.

Product Description

A beautiful new addition to the successful series

Juried by Karey Bresenhan, one of the most prominent figures in quilting, it presents 500 magnificent contemporary art quilts, made in fabric and other media, and showcasing diverse designs, materials, and techniques.
From their very inception, these quilts were destined for display rather than practical use, with an extraordinary quality of image, form, line, and composition.
