    When a stranger learns that I make quilts I am told stories about grandmothers who made quilts You can see in their eyes the warm memories they hold dear of sleeping under grandma s quilt, or draping a quilt over a table to build a sleeping tent, or carrying it to some shady park for a picnic Quilts are made to be used And they are often used up, like the one my mother in law gifted us in the 1980s, sun bleached with one fabric completely decayed.Some quilts are so precious they are folded away and stored in a closet or a cedar chest.Every quilt is also the product of its creator s love of beauty and design, a tactile work of art, the quilter selecting colors and prints and designs Quilts can be born out of frugality, using up and preserving, fabrics, like the first quilt my mother in law made for my husband to take to college using fabric scraps from curtains and pajamas and clothing she had made Quilts are no longer items of necessity as during the Depression, a need to repurpose precious fabrics for warmth But we love fabrics that come with a memory.Quilts symbolize values held by the maker, from love of family to love of country, from a symbol of healing to a symbol of protest They represent a choice for th...

    As an enthusiastic quilter I was delighted to see this book It was not quite what I expected but the main reason for its conception came across well and resonated with me than a few times The author is a statement quilter, he uses his art to address today s problems while others quilt for the exact opposite reason me included The testimonials from both sides of the Atlantic were varied in their explanations as to why they quilt as is to be expected and their offerings were equally different in all but name There is a supposed history of need being the mother of quilting in the way bedding was made from what was close at hand Quilts were sewn together for warmth as pioneers crossed the American wilderness or mothers and grandmothers provided for their families in poorer communities the world over and examples of this are beautiful in their simplicity and complexities There was however a time when only the wealthy were able to afford the imported fabrics which were the basis for wholecloth quilts and these too are shown in all their splendour This is a book to make you think about your own reasons for quilting and how they change as we get experienced or less...

    This is a really beautiful and powerful book exploring the multifaceted reasons for why we quilt Whereas quilts are no longer the material necessity that they once were, why do we continue to engage in an activity which can be financially costly and is time consuming The reasons are complex and often subjective to the maker yet they all seem to link to the main theme of connections connections with ourselves, with others, with the world around us, with materials, with the present moment, with our history, and so much I love the blend of academic, critical reflections on quilting alongside personal reflections from both the author Thomas Knauer and other quilters The photography is stunning and shows a wide range of quilts, techniques, colours and styles It is an inspiring, reflective, thought provoking read I wo...

    If you are a quilter, you will likely enjoy this book If not, you likely won t.Filled with lovely full color illustrations and accompanied by first person accounts of why each person quilts, this is a very enjoyable, informative, and even inspirational book I love the interspersed history lessons descriptions of traditional quilt blocks I also loved that both traditional and modern quilts are featured There are some well known names here and some not so well known, but all are inspiring and obviously love the craft art of quilting I really enjoyed this book, but honestly at the projected price of 30 upon print publication, it seems a bit pricey since it s only slightly over 200 pages including the photos and references at the b...

    This book was fascinating and beautiful I ve always been interested in quilting, but this book really explores the stories that make quilters quilt.What this book isn t is a how to on quilting What it is is first a history of quilting as an art form, as an expression of ideas and values Then, second, it is an exploration of what draws people to quilt. what are the ideas that they are trying to express, why do they choose to do this in q...

    Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read and give an honest review of this book.Having been a quilter for 40 years, I was interested in finding out what factors prompted others to take up this artistic endeavor This was a fairly simplistic book Besides the brief interviews with quilters, there were some references to quilting vocabulary like certain common quilt patterns This book did ...

    I was given an advanced copy by Net Galley for an honest review.This book is very interesting, but very hard to follow on a Kindle I believe the end product will be like a coffee table book to admire I look forward to seeing the finished hard bound ...

    This is an amazingly fresh look at the quilters of today Not only is there a beautiful and diverse collection of quilts featured but the makers describe what drives them to create them This does not offer patterns or techniques If you are a quilter it makes you fee...

    I was a little disappointed in this book I thought it would be full of ideas, but there was a lot of reading There were pictures of some lovely quilts, but I wanted a book that would help me create my own quilt I m sure it would interest hardened quilters, but not a novice such as myself.
