A little history about Secret Sewing Sisters and their friends…
This special group of quilters is comprised of 8 Australians and at the very center is Di Ford, the most celebrated quilter of this ensemble.
What makes this group so interesting?
Di was their teacher almost 20 years ago. As a result of their shared talent and mutual love for quilting, these friends formed the Secret Sewing Sisters to gather and make quilts!
In their latest endeavor, the Secret Sewing Sisters revisit and restyle some magnificent antique quilts from Jane Lury’s Labors of Love collection of quilts found in Meanderings of a Quilt Collector, published by Quiltmania Editions.
This amazing project came to fruition back in 2018, when the Secret Sewing Sisters invited Petra Prins, Michele Beugnon, Anne-Helene Nedelec and Renee Ferre to join them on this fabulous adventure.
The collaboration of all these talented artists resulted in the creation of 12 extraordinary quilts!
Truly a masterpiece, collectible book. Don't miss this one.
