by M Joan Lintault
Internationally renowned quilt artist M. Joan Lintault shares the philosophies and techniques she uses to create amazing art quilts. Involved in the fiber arts movement since 1965, Lintault’s work has been exhibited at, among other places, the Smithsonian Institute, the American Crafts Museum and the American Museum of Quilts and Textiles. This book is her latest artistic accomplishment – dedicating in print the deeply personal and elusive inner workings of an artist’s mind.
Lintault provides readers with invaluable insights into her artistic process. For her, the process of creating quilts is as much about formal artistic principles and elements as inspiration and intuition. Striving to have quilts recognized as serious art, Lintault employs her knowledge of “the language of art” in her creations.
While Lintault does explain some of her technical processes in the book – including sketching, fabric dyeing, layering, sewing and appliqué techniques -- it is less a “how-to” book as a “get yourself going” book.
