Giveaway Winner!

My "Modern Materials, Quilts of the 1970s" catalogue giveaway is now completed, a random drawing was done, and we have a winner! Lori Dejarnatt of Humble Quilts is the lucky one!! I am very happy Lori's name was drawn because she has regularly gone out of her way to attend my exhibitions and lectures, and was one of my first blog followers.

I ran into Lori at Quilt! Knit! Stitch! last month
Lori and I saw each other recently at Quilt! Knit! Stitch! and talked about some of the crazy stuff going on in our lives. The thing I appreciated about our conversation was we could find moments of humor and light even in the most difficult situations. It was a good thing to remember, because life is sometimes pretty crazy. And so are the quilts of the 1970s.

QuiltCon 2015 in Austin, Texas

The quilts are crazy, vibrant, exuberant, and representative of a very important period in American Quiltmaking. These quilts debuted earlier this year at QuiltCon in Austin, Texas, and I feel lucky to be one of the people who gets to tell everyone else about them. They are now on display in their first museum exhibition at the Benton County Museum in Philomath, Oregon through October 3rd.

Congratulations, Lori Dejarnatt, winner of the giveaway! The "Modern Materials" catalogue is 22 pages, softcover, small square 7" x 7"and is printed in full color. It is available through Blurb in hardcover image wrap, softcover and PDF - for more details, click here.
