Anna Williams is an amazing, wonderful, improvisational quilter. The quilt I'm working on was inspired by her. The best link to read more about Anna is here.
Anna's "LIX Log Cabin" made in 1993:
AQS is considering reprinting the book Anna Williams: Her Quilts and Their Influence by Katharine Watts, originally published in 1995. Actually, I probably shouldn't call it a book, since it was a catalog for a museum exhibition and only about 40 pages long. The company wants to know how much interest there would be in a reprint. I don't know what the price would be.
So we're going to do this like we did for getting Gwen Marston's Liberated Quiltmaking republished. We all mobilized and got the word out and convinced AQS we wanted one. It worked that time and maybe it can again.
In the comments section of this blog post, please indicate if you would consider buying:
an exact reprint of Anna Williams: Her Quilts and Their Influences
only an expanded, updated copy of the book, including more information and hopefully pictures. (I don't know if this is really an option, but I think they'd at least consider it if there is enough interest. Also, if you have the first book, I can see why you wouldn't need it again.)
If you wouldn't buy a book, please don't leave any comment at all. If you are commenting, please don't comment just as anonymous - put in at least your first name or handle. If you can't figure out how to put a comment on this blog post you can email me (UnRulyQuilter at gmail dot com) but comments are preferred so that AQS can read them easily.
The next step is to spread the word. If you have a blog, write a post and send folks here to indicate their interest. Tell your friends, anyone who would be interested. The faster we do this, the better.
Thanks, and fingers crossed!
