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.
04 – Zion
A true original. Zion National Park in Southern Utah is like no other place on earth. America’s fifth most visited National Park, Zion invokes outright awe and wonder in those who wander through it. From the jagged red sandstone cliffs carved into the main canyon to the golden grasses and ponderosa pines edging the towering plateaus, colors radiate with near phosphorescence from every crack and corner of the landscape.
Also an original? Garth Glazier’s bold interpretation of Zion. In this fourth installment in our Quilted American Landscapes series, the artist captured the park’s unique beauty with his striking style. Superimposed over the landscape, triangle quilt-block motifs underscore the serrated skyline. A searing bronze and purple palette evokes sunset over the sandstone cliffs, while a lone bighorn sheep looks up to the horizon.
04 | Zion is sure to captivate any quilter who has had the great pleasure of exploring this American icon — and even those who haven’t.
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.
