Tucsonan Sandy Lambert's "Abundance - Sabino Canyon"

The last images of quilts chosen for the 100 Arizona Quilts centennial exhibition have been turned over so that final design and production of a souvenir book from the show can take place.

The book will be available at the Arizona Historical Society’s Tucson branch throughout the show’s run – from February 18, 2012 through the end of the year.

Copies will also be available online. Details on pricing and sales location will follow.

Some of the quilts had to be re-shot and color corrected to make the book as true to the originals as possible.

The entire Tucson branch will be put in service to display this remarkable collection throughout Arizona’s centennial year of 2012.

Quilters were asked to create new (less than ten years old) works depicting some aspect of Arizona. Their interpretations of those loose guidelines resulted in unique and often breathtaking slices of life, land and history in the state of Arizona.

Shooting the project in both still images and video, and meeting the folks who created these works,  has been extraordinary and inspiring.
