Glass Quilt – a Collaborative Effort book is now for sale

November 6, 2008


The quilt book is finally done – thank goodness!  Much of my recent time has been spent waiting on necessary information needed to publish the book.  I didn’t get the information, so I went without it. What this means is that any sales profits from now until I do get the necessary information will come to me and I will forward it to the hospital. All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the hospital foundation.

I’m sorry it took so long to get to this point, but a lot of it was out of my control. It takes less than a week to print the book once you place an order, so there should be time for the book to arrive in time for Christmas.

My sincerest apologies, and I hope it was worth the wait.  Click on the badge below and it will take you to the page to view and place your order.

We have a home!

November 28, 2007

I have been in contact with the Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital Foundation (located in Spokane, WA) with their Director of Annual Giving, Brindy Roosa, to see if the Children’s Hospital might be interested in receiving our quilt as a donation.  After talking with their Executive Director, Vice President and Marketing Director, she said they are very excited about receiving this gift.

WGBB Glass Quilt Collaboration

May 5, 2007

Born from an idea tossed out on the Warm Glass Bulletin Board, 32 artists joined together in a collaborative effort to create a crazy quilt made of glass tiles. The theme chosen for the quilt is Earth, Air, Water and Fire. The hope is that this virtual quilt will become a reality with a permanent home in a gallery, museum, or university.

The artists were given no constraints other than keeping their tile to an 8″ x 8″ size.  Pieces range from a single layer of glass up to 2 1/2″ thick.  Artists could choose to interpret one element or all four elements in a single tile.  Most participants chose to represent all four of the elements, with water coming in second.  Only two people were brave enough to portray air, with five people portraying fire in their piece. 

This is an international collaborative effort with artists from South Africa, Finland, Northern Ireland, Saskatchewan, British Columbia and Ontario, Canada and Washington, Oregon, Nebraska, California, Wisconsin, Indiana, Virginia, North Carolina, Illinois, Ohio, Alabama, Massachusetts, Florida, plus others, in the United States.

Congratulations to all the participants for a job well done!
