I'm impressed, and honored to be part of such an incredible group of quiltmakers. The book is 208 pages, but I'm sure it easily could've been double the size with all the talent out there. I am happy the book includes one of my vintage quilts. It is a window into a world of historic context worth exploring. Kudos to Riane Menardi, Alissa Haight Carlton, Heather Grant, The Modern Quilt Guild, and all the artists and contributors whose work is represented in the book. Can't wait to see it!
