Zen And The Art Of Quilting: Exploring Memory and Meaning in Patchworkby Sandra Detrixhe
Zen and Art of Quilting is an exploration of what quilters know in their hearts: Their favorite craft is so much more than a means to an end-it is a process filled with meaning, community, spirituality, family, and love. A quilt is simultaneously a work of art and a comfort on a cold night; it is infused with its creator's story and with the story of women; it sets the creative imagination free and delves into the depths of our souls.
From America's earliest memories, quilting has been a way for people to come together, to share and to celebrate, to stitch the pieces of their lives from one generation to the next. Zen and the Art of Quilting explores the spiritual side of this hugely popular craft, deepening its meaning in the lives of contemporary quilters.
