The Uncommon Quilter: Everyday Inspiration for Year-Round Projects

Overview

In 1999, fiber artist Jeanne Williamson decided to expand her creative horizons by making one small quilt a week. She placed no limits on what materials she could use–in fact, she created her quilts almost exclusively from found objects, incorporating everything from newspaper and cupcake wrappers to fall leaves and funky yarns into her mixed-media art quilts. The goal was simply to create.

Overview

In 1999, fiber artist Jeanne Williamson decided to expand her creative horizons by making one small quilt a week. She placed no limits on what materials she could use–in fact, she created her quilts almost exclusively from found objects, incorporating everything from newspaper and cupcake wrappers to fall leaves and funky yarns into her mixed-media art quilts. The goal was simply to create.

Seven years later, Williamson now has 365 varied and intriguing quilts full of personal stories, experiences, and observations. She also discovered that she had succeeded in expanding her creative horizons–and her artwork has flourished as a result.

Now, in The Uncommon Quilter, Williamson provides quilters, sewers, paper crafters, and mixed-media mavens with 52 projects for creating unique small quilts. The book is divided by the type of medium or technique used in each project–Plastic, Paper, Surface Design, and Fiber–and each contains innovative ideas for using everyday materials and found objects. Projects take anywhere from twenty minutes to a few days to make, ensuring that artists can fit creative time into their busy lives.

With charming anecdotes and clear, step-by-step instructions, The Uncommon Quilter is an inspiring, insightful guide to creating unique small quilts for self-expression, creativity, and personal and artistic growth.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Quilters can get so wrapped up in choosing beautiful fabrics and following patterns that they ignore the creative possibilities of their art. What better way to free themselves than to create a small quilt a week with found objects like clothing labels, tree bark, old sock fragments, and cupcake wrappers. Williamson, who once made a quilt a week for seven years, guides readers in completing 52 small quilts via clear instructions, good color photos, a materials list, and commentary. An excellent choice for large public libraries and academic art quilt collections.
