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!

    I think that is a terrific venue for a quite display. Aren't libraries wonderful to display these artworks so everyone can enjoy them for free.

  2. Wow for a minute there I thought it was one of our local libraries here in Canberra! The Erindale library here also has a quilt display just like yours.

    Your butterfly wing is a standout! It looks almost like a photo.

    And yes I cannot believe how many people missed the quilts at our library by not looking up!

  3. These are beautiful, and what a perfect spot! Jen

    I am so excited about this. Will they still be there when I come in April? They look fantastic hanging there.

  5. Quilts and books are my favorite combination. You have a beautiful library to display your works.

  6. Your butterfly wing quilt is marvelous. Do you have more pictures of it anywhere else on your blog?

    How wonderful to have your quilts on public display. Is there an opportunity for you or your group to make a presentation about your quilts? I have done a handful of quilt and book presentations at local libraries and there is always an appreciative audience.
