Books and Quilts
Don't you think quilts go well with books? Well, look! An assortment of quilts by members of my art quilt group The Pointless Sisters is currently hanging on display in a local library (the Rincon Valley Public Library, if you live in the area and want to pop in and see them.) It's a great venue for large quilts, don't you think?
You can see my butterfly wing up there. (That quilts looks best viewed from a distance like this, I think.) The next quilt with the puppy on it is by Cathy Hansen, and the wonderful giraffe quilt (you probably need to see a close up of the photo) is by Diane Land. That's her entry for the muslin challenge--she dyed and painted all of those vibrant colors herself.
Here's another shot showing how great the quilts look up there. How can those people be just standing there, not looking up?!
And this row of quilts hangs opposite the one in the previous shots. From the left, you can see quilts by Mary Hernandez, Carolyn Wolf, and Selma Sklar.
There are many more quilts which look wonderful up there. I think our quilts really grace this lovely space. I hope some of the library patrons take the time to look up once in a while!
