PRAISE BASTED IN.
by Kaufman, Margaret
Limited to 100 copies, signed by all the participants. A poem by Margaret Kaufman that is a sequel to "Aunt Sallie's Lament" and creates a friendship quilt in celebration of her seventy-fifth birthday. It has nine squares from family and friends, each with its own greeting card and Sallie's comments. Each of the greeting cards was handwritten by a different woman and then printed. The designs were laser printed and some were hand colored. The title is stitched in with lavender crochet thread, and Sallie's verses are printed in Trump Mediaeval. The pages create a changing quilt pattern accumulating the names of the quilters and are made of papers from Barcham Green, Richard Langdell, MacGregor-Vinzani, Fabriano, Rives, and Mohawk Superfine. Many of the papers have patterns that are made up from a variety of printers' flowers plus linocuts for the appliqued designs. The cover is quilted with patterned cottons. The inside of the front cover of the box contains a silk flower bouquet. The boxes were made by Judi Conant and Mary Richardson. Includes the colophon in an eight page pamphlet with a cover using an embossed quilt card design by Lisa McMasters for Stone Ginger Press.
