Carol Has a New Book

Carol Jones has a new book with Bobbi Finley called Fresh Perspectives: Reinventing 18 Classic Quilts from the International Quilt Study Center & Museum

She showed several quilts from Fresh Perspectives at the April quilt show.

The book features contemporary interpretations of antique quilts from the Museum.
 Other KVQG members who have quilts in the book include Kathe D.
Deb R.
And Georgann

Visualize the future as you connect with the past

You'll love these contemporary interpretations of antique quilts from the International Quilt Study Center & Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska. Bobbi and Carol pored through the museum's collection to find just the right quilts to inspire their latest project designs. Each of their adaptations uniquely mirrors the essential qualities of each quilt. Fall in love all over again with our rich quilt heritage by making these projects, plus learn how to approach designing an artistic spin on one of your own antique treasures.

• Creative new adaptations of a diverse selection of antique quilts that range from simply functional to delightfully pictorial
• Projects show off a remarkable array of styles, settings, and colorways
• Use a variety of techniques, such as needle-turned appliqué and improvisational piecing, with traditional blocks
