Language: English . Brand New Book. From frontier times in the Republic of Texas until today, Texans have been making gorgeous quilts. Karoline Patterson Bresenhan and Nancy O Bryant Puentes documented the first 150 years of the state s rich heritage of quilt art in Lone Stars: A Legacy of Texas Quilts, 1836-1936 and Lone Stars II: A Legacy of Texas Quilts, 1936-1986. Now in Lone Stars III, they bring the Texas quilt story into the twenty-first century, presenting two hundred traditional and art quilts that represent the best of the best quilts created since 1986. The quilts in Lone Stars III display the explosion of creativity that has transformed quilting over the last quarter century. Some of the quilts tell stories, create landscapes, record events, and memorialize people. Others present abstract designs that celebrate form and color.

Each quilt is pictured in its entirely, and some entries also include photographs of quilt details. The accompanying text describes the quilt s creation, its maker, and its physical details. With 16.3 million American quilters who spend $3.6 billion annually on their pastime, the quilting community has truly become a force to reckon with both artistically and socially. Lone Stars III is the perfect introduction to this world of creativity. N° de réf. du libraire FLT9780292726994

Synopsis :

From frontier times in the Republic of Texas until today, Texans have been making gorgeous quilts. Karoline Patterson Bresenhan and Nancy O'Bryant Puentes documented the first 150 years of the state's rich heritage of quilt art in Lone Stars: A Legacy of Texas Quilts, 1836-1936 and Lone Stars II: A Legacy of Texas Quilts, 1936-1986. Now in Lone Stars III, they bring the Texas quilt story into the twenty-first century, presenting two hundred traditional and art quilts that represent "the best of the best" quilts created since 1986. The quilts in Lone Stars III display the explosion of creativity that has transformed quilting over the last quarter century. Some of the quilts tell stories, create landscapes, record events, and memorialize people. Others present abstract designs that celebrate form and colour. Their makers have embraced machine quilting, as well as hand sewing, and they often embellish their quilts with buttons, beads, lace, ribbon, and even more exotic items. Each quilt is pictured in its entirely, and some entries also include photographs of quilt details. The accompanying text describes the quilt's creation, its maker, and its physical details. With 16.3 million American quilters who spend $3. 6 billion annually on their pastime, the quilting community has truly become a force to reckon with both artistically and socially. Lone Stars III is the perfect introduction to this world of creativity.

Critique: "A tome showing quilts from the past 25 years, all made or completed in Texas... The 200 quilts display many techniques and styles. The authors comment on the increasing popularity of machine quilting and embellishment in the later years. The larger quilts each have a full-page photo, with details on the opposite page of the technique and the materials used. It is a stunning collection of outstanding work." - Patchwork & Quilting, April 2012
