500 Art Quilts

500 Art Quilts was edited by Ray Hemachandra and juried by Karey Bresenhan. It is a great little coffee table book as well as one to have in your studio or beside your bed. Most of the art quilts are shown one per page (there are exceptions). Each piece of art is featured with the name of the artist, title, date, size, materials and techniques. I think it is a great book of inspiration for anyone. However, I did note that the quilts date back to at least 1989 and I would have liked to have seen newer work from all the artists (just a personal note).

One of my friends, Karen Colbourne Martin, has a couple of art pieces in the book. Check out more of Karen's wonderful pieces at the Craft Council On-line gallery.
