MFA student featured in "Lone Stars III" at Texas Quilt Museum

MFA Studio Art Fibers student Naomi S. Adams has artwork included in the new book Lone Stars III: A Legacy of Texas Quilts, 1986-2011. Her piece was exhibited in conjunction with the release of the book at the Houston International Quilt Festival this month and will travel to other venues including the newly opened Texas Quilt Museum.

From frontier times in the Republic of Texas until today, Texans have been making gorgeous quilts. Karoline Patterson Bresenhan and Nancy O'Bryant Puentes documented the first 150 years of the state's rich heritage of quilt art in Lone Stars: A Legacy of Texas Quilts, 1836–1936 and Lone Stars II: A Legacy of Texas Quilts, 1936–1986. Now in Lone Stars III, they bring the Texas quilt story into the twenty-first century, presenting two hundred traditional and art quilts that represent "the best of the best" quilts created since 1986.
