|"Polished Timber" quilt on cover, by Victoria Findlay Wolfe, 2015
I'm happy to share this new book out, LOG CABIN FOREVER, in collaboration with the International Quilt Study Center & Museum, and Les Editions de Saxe.
The quilts in this book are all based on Log Cabin quilts from the IQSCM collection, and were interpreted by each of the quilt artists, with some guidelines: (below)
- compulsory size: ( 59 x 59 inches)
- colours scheme and colour harmony must be identical
- one third of the project must be realized with blocs similar to the
original quilt but the placement in the quilt can be different, the rest
can be more a variation/inspiration
The exhibit of the quilts is on view at the European Patchwork show now. I will be going to this show next year!
I wish I could see all the quilts in the exhibit! I have not yet seen the book. (Waiting patiently)
A photo was sent to me this morning with my quilt, Polished Timber,
(Hanging and Mine on the cover! woot!)
and a portion of the inspiration quilt. ( to the left of mine)
Thank you Carolyn and Leslie for the photo!
My quilt, Polished Timber, was paper pieced, (for the log cabin part,) long armed and hand quilted... I really loved working on his project and am tickled pink that they put it on the cover. I hand quilted most of the inside of this quilt, the outer borders were longarmed...
And I didn't even take any good pictures before I sent it off... ack!
found these two on my iPhone... sigh...
At the moment, I find the book here.
When I have more info on availability here, I will pass it on...
I'm off to Concord, MA today, speaking tonight! 7:15
See you there!
