I had to title this post “Oh Wow!” as I am feeling oh wow right now. In my post Look Look I am in a Book! I share my excitement that several of my collaboration silk quilt pieces were selected to be in Sandra Sider’s 1000 Quilt Inspirations: Colorful and Creative Designs for Traditional, Modern, and Art Quilt.
Well…I just got a huge surprise:
I friend of mine told me today – “Tierney I pre-ordered the book you are going to be in on Amazon”. So I went to Amazon (amazon.com) and located the book 1000 Quilt Inspirations: Colorful and Creative Designs for Traditional, Modern, and Art Quilts. I noticed that the book now has a “Look Inside” preview on Amazon. When I clicked on the “Look Inside” to see the book preview, I discovered, on page 12 of the book at the beginning of on Chapter 1 Traditional Designs 0001-0206, four (4) photos from my batik quilt Filmstrip. These images are #0001, 0002, 0003 and 0004 – I start out the 1000 of the 1000 quilt inspirations!
I did not even realize they had selected those photos, I thought only details from the two silk art quilts I did with Betty Anne Guadalupe (part of our The Wardrobe Meets the Wall Collection) were going to be in the book. I checked the back index (which the shows in the “Look Inside” preview) and I appear to have a total of 8 images from my quilts in the book.
The book does not come out till March 2015 so I have to be patient to see the rest but I am pretty excited to be in an Amazon “Look Inside” preview. I am so honored to have been selected to be in this book!
