We are continuing to celebrate alongside the Stash Books Legacy Blog Tour for Brave New Quilts by Whipup founder Kathreen Ricketson.

The tour post for today is by Alexandra Smith of  Lola Nova.  She writes about the book, and about the support and friendship she shared with Kathreen.

Kathreen’s legacy is huge and far reaching. From my first introduction to her via her trailblazing website WhipUp, to her brilliant kid’s magazine ActionPack, through her books and all of her endeavors; I have admired her talent, her love for her family, her intelligence and her amazingly generous spirit. She encouraged me greatly when I was working on my own book. She treated me with great respect and made me laugh. She is one of the people through whom I have made friends from all over the art/crafting/making community and have been more inspired and courageous than I ever could have imagined.

We are continuing to follow the Stash Books Legacy Blog Tour for Brave New Quilts by Whipup founder Kathreen Ricketson.

Today’s post is by Kristin Link of Sew Mama Sew, entitled Kathreen Ricketson’s Brave New Quilts Legacy Tour (or Why I spent an Entire Day Looking at Bauhaus Art)

Although Kathreen’s book doesn’t contain examples of the art of each period, in homage to the spirit of  Brave New Quilts, I thought I’d do a little research and share some inspiring art from just one of the 12 movements that are discussed in the book–Bauhaus. I hope that by reviewing this work, you’ll recognize the influence this art movement–from nearly a century ago –has had on the modern quilts of today, and perhaps be moved to make an art-inspired quilt of your own. (The quilt on the cover of the book, Weave, is Kathreen’s take on Bauhaus, and happens to be one of my favorites.)
