Quiltfolk’s mission is to explore and celebrate quilting in all its forms. The geography and culture we discover during our travels is an intrinsic part of the quilts and quilters we meet. It is in that spirit of discovery that we have commissioned the Quilted American Landscapes collection.
Created by Michigan-based artist Garth Glazier, this collectible series celebrates the relationship between a quilter and their natural world. Six vibrant quilt-inspired designs represent distinct regions of America and highlight the characteristics of each — nature, architecture, color, and more.
For each design in the series, we will offer a limited edition of only 400 prints, individually hand-numbered and signed by the artist.
This collectible series of six prints will be released throughout 2019 and will only be available at Quiltfolk.com. Emails will notify Quiltfolk Insiders as new prints become available for purchase.
01 – NEW ENGLAND
We start with a beacon of light. At the center of this New England-inspired landscape is the iconic Portland Head Light. Maine’s oldest lighthouse was originally commissioned in 1787 at the directive of George Washington. Its likeness anchors our first Quilted American Landscapes print, amid a variety of New England elements which the artist illustrates in contrast with a striking patchwork background.
Artwork is offset-printed on premium 120-pound paper with a matte finish. Size is 18 x 24 inches. Prints come unframed with a 1-inch white border to allow for gallery-style framing. Each print is hand-numbered and signed in pencil by artist Garth Glazier.
SHIPPING & DELIVERY
Orders of 01 – New England will arrive to US customers in early April. Each print is wrapped with tissue paper and shipped in a thick mailing tube specifically designed for protection.
