"Rituals" book available on Blurb!

An exchange between friends. A handshake. A kiss before bedtime. The artist at work.  A sun salutation. The wave before boarding the school bus. A song, a word, a meditation. A habit, a custom.  The traditional toast at a gathering. A rite of passage. The sacred moments of the ordinary.  Rituals:  What are yours?
A collection of 42 Art Quilts 

 International Quilt Festival, Long Beach, CA  - July 26-29, 2012
sponsored by Moore's Sewing Centers

If, like me, you can't get to the International Quilt Festival in Long Beach to see the "Rituals" quilt exhibit by the Dinner at Eight artists (including me!), you might be pleased to know that you can order a book with all 42 quilts in the exhibit. 

The book includes photos of all 42 quilts as well as information about each of the artists.  The artists include Susan Brubaker Knapp, Natalya Aikens, Jane LaFazio, Kathy York, Terry Grant, Jane Davila, Deborah Boschert, and more.  It's a lovely book and the quilts are very inspirational.  And it's fun to see how each artist responded to the theme "rituals."  

You can order your book HERE, directly from Blurb.
