SEATTLE WA You’re going to love this month’s giveaway—a copy of Robert Shaw’s newly updated book, American Quilts—The Democratic Art. Robert is The Man when it comes to American arts and crafts, with quilts being one of his specialties.
There’s lots to see—over 350 quilts—and lots to read—Robert is a gifted writer. It’s a big book, coming in at 376 pages. In fact, you’ll need a coffee table for this baby.
Robert takes you back to Old World Traditions and American Beginnings (1780-1825) as well as catches you up with today’s quilting scene, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (2000-2013), with many stops along the way. Whether you’re interested in quilt history or want to be inspired by original and inventive masterworks, this book delivers.
To participate in this giveaway, just leave a comment about why you would like to add this book to your library. The drawing for the giveaway will be held at midnight PST on December 31. The prize will then be shipped anywhere in the world.
(The winner is chosen with a random number drawing.)
GIVEAWAY CLOSED: The winner of the December Giveaway is Bobbe Shapiro Nolan of Eagle Lake, Texas.
