Masters Art Quilts Volume 2

Martha Sielman has done it again! Masters Art Quilts Volume 2 is every bit as exciting, stimulating and inspiring as the first volume, if not more so. In this new volume, she has chosen 40 more artists to spotlight. These artists represent a diverse array of themes and techniques. They come from all over the world and share insights into their inspirations and techniques. Many of these artists were new to me, and I loved seeing their work and reading about their motivation and processes. There were also many artists that I already knew, but I was able to see new work and gain more insight into their work. This is truly a book that belongs on your reference shelf!

*** Lark Crafts has generously given me a complimentary copy of this book to give away to one lucky person. If you are interested, please leave a comment, and I will draw a name on Sunday morning, August 28th.
