1000 Quilt Inspirations

Seaweed SwirlI am so honored to be included in the new book by Sandra Sider called 1000 Quilt Inspirations. It was just released. The book is available from Amazon. So many different types of quilts are included, so this book has something for everyone. I have 5 small quilts that are in the book, and my quilt called “Seaweed Swirl” is also included on the collage of quilts on the cover. It is in the upper left corner. Here’s a picture of the quilt.

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!”

Mixed Media Art Magazine

PetrosThere is a new online magazine called “Mixed Media Art Magazine”. The creator and editor, Luisa Nims, recently interviewed me for the magazine. She also took a video of me demonstrating how I make tea bag paper for my collages. I had never been interviewed before for an art magazine, so it was a wonderful new experience for me. You can see the article she wrote about me in Volume 12 of the magazine. The magazine can be purchased individually or by subscription through iTunes Newstand at http://bit.ly/MMAMag.

Here is “Petros” who is included in the magazine along with several of my other mixed media pieces.
