9781617691232: Unconventional & Unexpected: American Quilts Below the Radar 1950-2000

Unconventional & Unexpected: American Quilts Below the Radar 1950–2000 is a stunning collection of approximately 150 eccentric and extraordinary quilts made predominantly by anonymous quilters in the US during the second half of the 20th century. Collected by renowned quilt authority and collector Roderick Kiracofe, they represent a 20th-century quilt movement that remains mostly undocumented. Unlike the familiar quilts that replicate traditional patterns of earlier centuries, these surprising textiles represent a freer, more casual, utilitarian style that departs from (and returns to) a multitude of norms and standards. Peppered with essays by renowned experts that help to contextualize the quilts’ surprisingly modern aesthetic, Unconventional & Unexpected is a groundbreak­ing celebration of 20th-century quilting that picks up where most other quilt histories leave off.

Review :

"This year's picturesque coffee table tome for quilters and collectors." - Associated Press 

"[One of the] 19 textile books to give & get in 2014." - Surface Design Association

"Wholly appropriate to its subject matter, Unconventional & Unexpected exudes a refreshing authenticity, character, and humility." - AmericanCraft

"In this gorgeously illustrated coffee-table book, Kiracofe showcases nearly 150 examples that break the rules. ...the quilts range from surprising takes on traditional patterns to Pop Art creations featuring mod patterns, bold color combinations and unusual motifs."  - Katie Noah Gibson (Shelf Awareness blog)

"These are quilts that rebel, they break the rules; these are quilts 'with charisma.'" - Deborah Nash (British Patchwork & Quilting)

“With over 100 pages of photographs of quirky and extraordinary quilts from Kiracofe’s personal collection, the book gives readers the opportunity to enter a world undiscovered by many and enjoy patterns that break the traditional boundaries—all while demonstrating their contribution to American contemporary art . . . this book is full of stories and ideas to make your décor pop with historical value and romantic vibrancy.” (Romantic Homes)

“Gorgeous coffee-table book . . . Kiracofe proves scrap quilts worthy of moving from bed to wall.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Truly thoughtful essays by ten different worthy authors . . . you will want to hug this book.” (Meg Cox, quilt journalist, author, and instructor)

“Almost 150 quilts you won’t find on Pinterest.” (Boing Boing)
