Along with the rest of the nation and the world, C&T Publishing was shocked and saddened by the terrorist attacks on the United States. We have looked for appropriate ways to commemorate the victims and contribute to relief efforts. Now we are proud to announce a very special project designed to do both.
C&T Publishing, in association with Quilts, Inc., is pleased to announce the publication of America from the Heart, a full-color catalog of the quilt exhibit of the same name seen at last Fall's International Quilt Festival. America from the Heart was an incredible, spontaneous exhibit of quilts made by people all over the world in response to the tragedies of September 11. It was an unforgettable exhibit of art quilts, first quilts, and everything in between.
These quilts are truly works from the heart - created in the six weeks following September 11 as an expression of the artist's immediate, agonized feelings about the attacks. These works of art are both moving and a true declaration of America's strength and patriotism.
America from the Heart includes images of the quilts from the exhibit, along with statements from the quilters who created them. Karey Bresenhan, founder of Quilts, Inc. and organizer of International Quilt Festival, wrote the foreword.
C&T Publishing is proud to donate ALL profits from sales of America from the Heart to the Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund to provide higher education for the surviving spouses and children of September 11 victims.
