Thomas Knauer's Modern Quilt Perspectives!



Thomas Knauer has made some great quilts! And now, he can share them with you, in his new book, Modern Quilt Perspectives!

I was honored when he asked me to write the foreword for his book. Having had some long interesting, conversations with Thomas, it was very nice to be able to see our similarities in the process of the way we think and work, by adding story and life moments, to our quilts.
THANKS THOMAS FOR INCLUDING ME!!!!

I absolutely love the cover quilt...

One of my favorite quilts of Thomas's is ''In Defense of Handmade'', quilted by Lisa Sipes,shown below hanging at  Quiltcon.

As I flipped through Thomas's book, I came upon this quilt.
 (great touching story to this quilt's size and shape!) You'll have to grab copy to read!

WEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
INSPIRED!!!

...and it made me do this….



and this….



Thanks once again for inspiring me Thomas Knauer!!!

  1. Thanks for the opportunity- today I'm grateful for a) options, and b) what quilting has taught me about the value of "scraps"- the little bits other people might just throw away. Fingers crossed...

  2. I am grateful I was able to sew on the required 4" sleeves to my finished quilts for the upcoming local quilt show today. The "men folk" in my home prepared meals and did necessary yard work so I wouldn't have to put down the needle!.

  3. I am so grateful to my husband who is home today watching the dogs so McGee doesn't eat anything he shouldn't. that allows me to sew rather than run after that bad basset boy.

  4. I am grateful for my children, they are so amazing! They inspire me EVERY DAY to be the best that I can be and to follow my dreams!

    Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  5. I'm grateful for the use of my hands again after two operations on them last year. In December we seriously thought I would never sew again, or cut fabric, or write with a pen, but now recovery is almost complete. That's a lot to be grateful for, as is the companionship of the blogging quilting community. Thank you all.

  14. My grandson turned 6 on Saturday and his party was yesterday. I'm grateful every day that he and his parents moved back from Oregon so that I can see him and his powerhouse of a sister (18 months old) nearly every day. Cuts into quilting time, but so worth it.

  29. V - I'm grateful for so much today, but if I had to choose, I'd say that I am most grateful for quilter-bloggers. They (and you) have given me a great education about the craft of making quilts, about color, about the freedom to follow your instincts when you need to make a decision, about pattern and play, and about design. Lucky are the women who have a quilt group to meet with, but if you don't have that, don't despair ~ the bloggers are there! Thanks for the opportunity to win this yummy book.

  35. many things! family, friends and happiness are always at the top!! but i often think of the quilters of the past, no rotary cutters,internet (no blogs), or the amazing quilters network that we enjoy today. no mid arm or long arm. my mom was a self taught left-handed hand quilter. she used cardboard patterns and old right-handed scissors to cut out the fabric.well, this could go on and on. i'm happy to have the modern conveniences we all enjoy today.....

Right now I am thankful for a kind, wise vet, for the ability to take our cat to a specialist who might provide guidance, and for a cat with a happy, resilient spirit. And a partner who values the same things I do, and didn't hesitate on the cost and treatment plan for the cat we both love.

  156. With many in my circle of friends struggling with death, illness and pain, I am grateful to be in decent health to that I can do the things I need and want to do, quilting being one of them. Every time I sit at my machine, I am grateful that my eyes work, my hands and arm generally do what I want them to, and that my mind is together enough to make a quilt from start to finish. Thank you for the giveaway-- looking forward to reading this book.

  176. I received this book in the mail and read it in a day. Love it. So interesting to read the stories about the quilts, the inspiration and motivation. I'm not that sort of quilter. I'm a get an idea and see what I can do with it or see where it goes kind of quilter. I like to "make stuff", pure and simple. It's the third book I've bought on your recommendation and I've loved them all, so thank you.
