I'd like to introduce you to another ArtSparker today, Lyric Kinard. Lyric is a master art quilter and a very popular teacher. She's done numerous appearances on Quilting Arts TV, has a DVD out and her book, Art + Quilt has been a joy to read and work with.
A+Q is filled with concepts to learn and teaches the art of inspiration and creativity. It teaches how to build and strengthen your craft. In other words (loosely quoted): Give a woman a fish and she eats for a day. Teach her how to fish and she'll never go hungry. This is a book to be worked through, scribbled in and to read with your journal alongside of you. A strong tool for quilters with a load of relevant information for any artist.
