500 ART QUILTS, the new publication by Lark Books, arrived at my door yesterday. My piece, Floating Leaves Revisited, is on page 77, and I am so honored to be included. This book is overflowing with “eye candy” from some of my own “hero” fiber artists including Carol Bryer Fallert, Jane Dunnewold, Barbara Barrick McKie, and Barbara Schneider as well as many others too numerous to name. There are also many artists whose incredible work was not familiar to me. You can get your copy from www.amazon.com or directly from www.LarkBooks.com. Many thanks to Karey Patterson Bresenhan (www.quilts.com), juror.
Here are the first two pieces of my new series, described in my 11/12/09 post, “Ancient Messages/Modern Messages”.
For these pieces I used hand-dyed and screened fabric, rust-dyeing, photo transfer and stitching.
