The Best Contemporary Quilts

by Lark Books


Book Description
These are among the most innovative, outstanding quilts being designed today--chosen to appear in the 2001 Quilt National Biennial Exhibition--and a source of new ideas, interest, and excitement for quilt makers, collectors, and enthusiasts alike. Since its inception 22 years ago, the Quilt National exhibit continues to be a showcase for contemporary artists who expand the boundaries of traditional quilt making, creating designs meant for display on walls rather than as covers for beds. It sets the standards and serves as the model for all other art quilt shows. Through the large, spectacular color photographs here, as well as the artists' descriptions of the motivations behind their works, you can enjoy and refer to these quilts as often as you like at home. These designs are wonderful reflections of where quilting has been--and where it's going.

by Shirley, E. Held


4 out of 5 stars An excellent college textbook, November 3, 1998
  Reviewer: A reader from Danville, VA

This book is the standard college textbook at the two universities where I studied weaving, and includes historical information, practical instruction, and design information. The practical instruction assumes you have a floor loom. Recommended. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Memory on Cloth
by Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada


From Library Journal
Best known in the United States as tie-dye, shibori is a traditional Japanese resist-dye technique that gained popularity along with other folk art movements of the 1960s and 1970s. With the rediscovery of its techniques, shibori's popularity spread worldwide; there have been three international symposiums on shibori, the last in 1999 in Chile. Artisan and author Wada (Shibori: The Inventive Art of Japanese Shaped Resist Dyeing) has promoted and taught this technique for years. Here, the author outlines shibori's transition from craft to fiber art in traditional and nontraditional formats, focusing on the works of several artists. The descriptions are accompanied by illustrations that are well placed though a bit muted. For in-depth information on both the technique and its history, there is no substitute for Wada's earlier book, which is in its ninth printing. Focusing on more advanced forms of a dyeing technique, this volume is rather narrow in topic and recommended only for specialized or fiber art collections. Public libraries that have the earlier book will want to pass. Karen Ellis, Nicholson Memorial Lib. Syst., Garland, TX
