Lone Stars III:  A Legacy of Texas Quilts 1986-2011
by Karey Patterson Bresenhan and Nancy O'Bryant Puentes

I haven't seen it yet, but I heard it's a good one! I can't wait to get my copy! The quilt on the cover is stunning!!  You can read a lovely review on Virginia Spiegel's Blog, here.  I have two individual quilts included and a number of group quilts.  My two quilts, Little Cities and A Few of My Favorite Things, arrived in Houston this last August.  Quilts, Inc. is having an exhibit with as many of the quilts from the book as they could arrange for the Houston International Quilt Show. 

Karey Bresenhen's enthusiasm and support for quilters is widely known, so it should come as no surprise that she has a starring role in the development and opening of the new Texas Quilt Museum in La Grange, TX.  The opening of the museum is timed perfectly with the Houston Quilt Show and will have part of the Lone Stars III exhibit will be there.  I am so pleased and honored that Little Cities will be at the Texas Quilt Museum.  From the museum's website, "A not-for-profit entity, the Museum will operate under the aegis of The Quilt Institute.  It will be housed in two historic 1890s buildings, which will provide a fine showcase for both antique and contemporary quilt art with their high ceilings, brick walls, and original hardwood floors." 

The group quilts are:  Cosmic Curves, Group Conversations, and I Sing the Flower Eclectic.  I am a bit sketchy on the details about which quilts are going where....And, I am a bit behind on my record keeping for photos of the other two.  I'll need to research that a bit.  Suffice to say, I am pleased as punch to be a part of this historic undertaking and celebration of quilting!

Congratulations on having your work in this absolutely fabulous book of valuable information and quilts. It's one of the best books that I've seen in a long time! Karey and Nancy left no stone unturned. A labor of love.
