1000 Quilt Inspirations by Sandra Sider

1000 Quilt InspirationsI just found out that I have at least one quilt in another quilt book called 1000 Quilt Inspirations by Sandra Sider. Not only do I have a quilt in the book, but I made one of the quilts on the cover. See the top left quilt. It is called “Seaweed Swirl” and was one of the Studio Art Quilt Associates donation quilts last year. What a kick!

Here is blurb on the book: “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. See how others utilize color and design elements to craft creative pieces. Gain inspiration from their variations and intricate techniques. Maybe even construct your own original quilts. Whether you are a quilter or a collector, a craft-lover or an art enthusiast, 1000 Quilt Inspirations is sure to inspire your admiration and appreciation of the art of quilting. It’s also likely to get you itching for some fabrics of your own!”

Here is some information on the author: “Dr. Sandra Sider, a New York quilt artist and independent curator, has published articles and reviews concerning fiber art and other aspects of visual culture for three decades. Her graduate degrees include an M.A. in art history from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. She was President of Studio Art Quilt Associates (2010-2013), and is Consulting Curator for the Texas Quilt Museum.”

    Hi, I saw one of your quilts hanging in a Moraga art store – at night after it was closed. Through the glass, in the dark, I was facinated and returned weeks later trying to find out who you were. I have never seen anything more incredible. Boy was I surprized it was a quilt! My grandmother quilted for many, many years. She had a farm in Arkansas and they sat around a big quilting table and gossiped about all that was happening in the little town. They got their fabric from a shirt factory in town and donated their quilts to the church for the poor.

    Now I am looking at all your other quilts and I am blown away by your gift!!

    The quilt I am referring to is “Retired to the Country”. Is it for sale? Are any of your quilts for sale?

    In any case, I am a huge fan!!!
