5.0 out of 5 stars An insight into Art Quilting 25 years ago! 22 Dec 2013
I am a great fan of well-written older books on patchwork and quilting, and really enjoyed reading this one. Through a series of interviews it offers insight into the different styles and techniques which leading quilters had developed 20 years and more ago. Several pages are dedicated to each quilter, and include beautiful photos of complete pieces, photos which show details of the technique, and also of the quilter at work - often in surprising places such as outdoors on a farm. An extra bonus is composed of a few interviews with much older quilters - ladies who were in their eighties and still working hard!
The quilters talk about how they came to their particular way of quilting and many give a step-by-step explanation of at least some of the techniques they use in their quilts.
So much has happened in the art quilting/textile world since then, but students of textiles will gain a lot of information from this book - if only to see what one of the most highly considered textile artists of today, Pauline Burbridge, was doing many years ago!
