Exciting New Book!



I can hardly wait for this book to be released on September 9!

features about 150 quirky utilitarian quilts from Roderick Kiracofe's extensive collection
plus other quilts he borrowed for the book.   All were made between 1950 and 2000.

AND

It includes essays on art and quilts by big names in the art and quilt worlds.  
Kaffee Fassett and Denyse Schmidt are just two of the names I remember him mentioning. 



Here's Roderick Kiracofe, the author, and the nicest man you could ever meet. 
I got to have tea and pie with him recently in his home town, San Francisco.  

He's also written major quilt history classics that most of us have in our libraries:  

Although he encourages us to support our local book sellers, Amazon has the book on pre-order here.  

I've ordered mine.  Like I said, I can't wait!
