Surprise -- another new HAAQG library book. And this book is my new favorite.
Modern Quilt Magic: 5 Parlor Tricks to Expand Your Piecing Skills - 17 Captivating Projects by Victoria Findlay Wolfe. Wow. Full of projects, tips and tricks, this book is amazing. Victoria writes about our artistic integrity and that we are our own quilt police. She challenges us to look with our eyes and not our heads, to focus on what we like and not fall into the trap of what we don't like. Is this book about life or quilting? For Victoria, I think it's both.
Then the 17 projects, some big and some small, some modern, some traditional. Her Herringbone pattern with partial-seam construction reads so simply I might try it. Well, maybe a pillow. Bright colors, well written, clear directions, she has included what we need to make more quilts with ease.
In 2019, Victoria Findlay Wolfe's exhibit "Playing with Purpose: A Quilt Retrospective" was displayed to the National Quilt Museum in Paducah. More recently, she was on PBS series, Craft in America : QUILTS.
We will continue to take new or renewal subscriptions to Fons & Porter Love of Quilting magazine. Please be sure to pay with personal check, payable to Love of Quilting.
If you have books or magazines to donate to Library, please be sure to contact Mary Weakman before bringing to a Guild meeting due to the very limited storage space, we have available.
