2013 Quilt Legend Michael James
(Show 1313) It is with great pride and pleasure that we reveal our 2013 Quilt Legend: quiltmaker, artist, and author, Michael James. Our first stop is the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, where Michael serves as Chair and Ardis James Professor of Textiles, Merchandising, and Fashion Design. UN-L is also home to the International Quilt Study Center and Museum, and we're treated to insights on the collections from Michael and Carolyn Ducey, Curator of Collections. Then Michael reveals how he transitioned from painter to textile artist, and the evolution of his work in the process. In addition, he shares a technique for enhancing a wholecloth quilt, and welcomes us to his home for a tour of his studio, a peek at his fabric collection, and a preview of the newest piece on his design wall.
