Today I have some exciting news to share that has been a huge secret. Multiple years ago, to launch our book Chintz Quilts from the Poos Collection, we presented an exhibition of these amazing quilts at Carrefour European Patchwork in Saint Marie Aux Mines, France. It is a wonderful quilt show spread out between little villages in the mountains.
My sister Kay and I had a great time at our Chintz Quilts from the Poos Collection exhibition signing our new book and giving a gallery talk. We were joined by co-author Xenia Cord who also sat with us to sign books. Our book included a detailed history section, as well as fabulous full quilt photos and detail shots. There are 36 quilts in the book and to learn more about the quilt photos in the blog, please check out our vlog on our YouTube channel at this link. Please be sure to subscribe, so you don’t miss an episode!
When our book first came out, it was very expensive. We were required to sell the book for $75 in the US because it was so expensive to print. Thankfully the book which still has much to offer is now going to be offered at a special price of only $40 plus shipping at this link. We are offering this price to celebrate the exciting news…yes, you’ve waited long enough…that all 36 Chintz Quilts from the book will be moving to a new home at the International Quilt Museum in Lincoln, NE. We are thrilled to have Chintz quilts at a location where they will be cared for and shared with many future generations. So please celebrate this good news with us!
