Quilting is a craft, rich with tradition and homespun, practical applications. But it’s also an art--which, with needle, thread, fabric, and an idea, can give us a new way of looking at, and wrapping ourselves in, the world. This book profiles twenty American practitioners of that art, quilters whose fascinating, innovative work takes the craft one step further and makes it into something new. These remarkable quilters describe their inspiration and methods and show us several examples of their best work. Among them are Jeanne Williamson, a celebrated mixed-media journal quilter; Pam Rubert, whose large-scale quilts showcase her humor; Loretta Bennett, the youngest of the beloved Gee's Bend quilters; Boo Davis, a hip crafter who pieces together quilts with heavy-metal themes; Susan Else, who constructs whimsical quilted sculptures; Ai Kijima, a Brooklyn-based artist influenced by Japanese anime; and Jane Burch Cochran, whose folk-art quilts feature thousands of beads and buttons. Through personal conversations with the quilters, author Spike Gillespie gives us an inside, in-depth look at what inspires each, what methods they use, and how their art has evolved. Along with these close-up views of the quilter’s studio and process, each profile features firsthand tips and inspirational advice. Quilting Art serves as an idea book for quilters, as well as a gorgeous representation of the quilter’s art.

Der Art Quilt als relativ junge Kunstform ist das bislang jngste Puzzleteil einer bereits jahrtausendealten Geschichte von Quilts und Patchwork. Jeder Quilt ist durch seine differenzierte, kulturell gewachsene, umfangreiche Handarbeitstechnik gekennzeichnet. Daher werden in den ersten beiden Teilen die ?Grundfesten? von Technik und Praxis sowie Herkunft und Kulturgeschichte erl„utert. Im ersten Kapitel gehe ich auf grundlegende definitorische Fragen der Differenzierung und Kategorisierung von Quilts ein. Danach werden grundlegende Techniken der Machart vermittelt: Vom Quiltstich ber die Sandwichtechnik und zum grundlegenden Aufbau bis zu grundlegenden Patchwork- und Quiltmustern und -techniken, z.B. ?Crazy? und ?Log Cabin?, sowie Seminoletechniken, Scrap-Quilt und Blocktechniken. Das zweite Kapitel ist der Versuch einer historisch-chronologisch-, sowie kulturvergleichenden Abhandlung ber die Entwicklung des Quilt bis in die 1960er Jahre. šber antike ?Quiltwurzeln? wird die Linie gezogen zum europ„isch-nativen Quilterbe, den englischen, deutschen, schweizerischen, niederl„ndischen, italienischen und franz”sischen Techniken: Dies sind die Quilts der sp„teren amerikanischen Siedler, die sich in Amerikas kolonialen Tagen stets weiterentwickeln werden zum ?amerikanischen? Quilt. Die bedeutenden Quilts der Amischen, modische Entwicklungen der U.S.-?Quiltbooms? der 1870er bis 1930er Jahre sind weitere Schritte zum dritten ?Quiltboom? der 1960er Jahre, wo schlieálich der Art Quilt entsteht. Die Entwicklungen des Art Quilt in der amerikanischen und europ„ischen Szene, die Wandlungsphasen zwischen 1960 bis heute, vervollst„ndigen die Abhandlung unter kulturhistorischen Aspekten einerseits, wie auch pr„gender Knstler, Werke und Ausstellungen.
