My piece in C&T’s new Postcard Collection

I opened up the summer/fall 2010 C&T Publishing catalog today, and look what I found! This is my Purple Phalaenopsis on the cover of “The Art of Quilts Postcard Collection – Nature.” I had given my permission to use this piece in the collection, but I didn’t know they had selected it to adorn the outside of the box! What a thrill. 

This orchid piece is from the series I completed in late 2009 and early 2010; it was part of Fiber Art Options exhibition “Orchids: Sensuality Stitched.”

In this catalog, C&T officially launches its Stash Books, a new line of books to “celebrate handmade fabric arts and encourage the craft sewer to create beautiful authenticity in a time of mass production,” according to Publisher Amy Marson. I have already put several of these on my must have list – including the one on making lunch bags and wraps, and one with darling “feltie” characters to stitch.

Another postcard collection features animals. That’s David Taylor’s  Sir Francis on its box. The Animal series will be available in September, and the Nature series in December.
