Modern Quilts: Designs of the New Century

Another new book arrived yesterday, and my collection is once again represented. The book is called "Modern Quilts: Designs of the New Century" (2017, C&T/Stash Books) by The Modern Quilt Guild (Riane Menardi, Alissa Haight Carlton and Heather Grant).

The book is about modern quiltmaking, but my quilt appears in the beginning, along with other quilts representing modern quiltmaking influences.

The vintage 1970s quilt came from an eBay seller in Georgia, and it was part of my special exhibit, "Modern Materials, Quilts of the 1970s" at QuiltCon 2015 in Austin, Texas. It also appeared in QuiltCon Magazine.

The hexagonal design called "Woven Pattern" was made some time in the middle to late 1970s. It was made with a variety of polyester double knit fabrics and tied with multicolored yarn.

It was a pleasure to see so many friends in the book, and an honor to be mentioned in the same sentence ascollectors Roderick Kiracofe and Marjorie Childress. Thank you to The Modern Quilt Guild for including me in the book. I hope everyone will enjoy it.
