In this beautiful book, Nancy Crow discusses the development of her quilting style, the influences on her work, and her working methods. She includes a brief family biography, then the first chapters are a history/roadmap of her quilting experiences from her first quilts in the '70s to her more complex, artistic, and original quilts of her later years.
Nancy Crow is considered among the most innovative of contemporary quilt artists and her reputation and influence extend from coast to cost. She often works in a series, one quilt giving birth to the next.
This is a look inside the mind of one of the best Quilt Artists. From the forward by Jean Robertson, "This book provides a special opportunity to view a decade of work in depth, and to begin to understand how time and experience have shaped Crow's creativity. It is fitting that the book presents the artist's words beside her work. Her quilts embody insights about art and life achieved through enormous effort; her words help us to fathom her discoveries."
