Editorial Reviews

Review

“Through these small biographies and beautiful illustrations, it is possible to learn how access to art education in Ohio catalyzed interest in the arts which resulted in the use of textiles to express views of modern society.... By the 1980s Ohio had established itself as a geographic center for this type of artistry.”
Ohio History


“The oral histories tirelessly gathered and artfully presented by Pritchard constitute an unparalleled contribution to the history of Ohio quilt making.”
Northwest Ohio History


“Gayle Pritchard's book is a godsend, a serious, carefully researched study of the history and continuing development of quiltmaking by artists, full of valuable new information and insights. Pritchard's deep focus and solid scholarship are models for all future studies of the genre.”
— Robert Shaw, author of The Art Quilt


“(P)hotos of art quilts create an exuberant overall image of the works of many people who have been instrumental in establishing Art Quilts as a separate and relatively recent phenomena in the quilting world.”
Quilter’s Muse


“Profiles of more than 20 quilters and arts organizations offer a broad, yet highly personal look at the movement and its makers. The book includes many photos of quilts, along with rare personal photographs and excerpts from in-depth interviews.”
The Professional Quilter


”By turns zany, wistful and whimsical, the quilts presented in this volume demonstrate the creative revolution in quiltmaking that occurred in Ohio in the 1970s and 80s…. Pritchard proves that the contemporary quilt movement could not have occurred without Ohio's unparalleled contribution.”

Format: Paperback
Gayle Pritchard has done a remarkable job in capturing the essence of how the art quilt movement began in Ohio. She documents Ohio's importance in putting art quilts into the art world as art rather than craft. The documentation, photos and overall information creates a strong picture of how the art quilt movement started in Ohio and has now infiltrated into the rest of the world. This is a must have in one's personal library.

Format: Paperback
This is a history of the Art Quilt and it's makers. Nancy Crow was the star pioneer in the Art Quilt field and an Ohio native but there were many great quilters from Ohio that emerged at the same time. Gayle Pritchard chronicles the history in an easy-to-read format with biographies and photos of the prominent players. A concise cohesive treatment of the artists that will make you want more. The only thing missing was a biography and more work from Gayle, herself, also a major player in the Art Quilt World.

For the pictorial quilter this book is a terrific resource packed with colorful illustrations bound to inspire. There are a number of artists featured which means that the quilt selection is varied.

Format: Paperback
Ohio is the heartland when it comes to the origins of the art quilt. While most quilters are familiar with Nancy Crow, I don't think that most of us know the history of other quilters in the early art quilting movement. Pritchard follows the development of the art quilt movement and the establishment of several major shows, including Quilt National.

This volume is richly illustrated with quilts from many artists and it follows the art quilt movement/fiber art up to the date of publication. Fresh, and well written, this book is a great addition to your quilting reference library.
